What counts toward Interaction Time (interaction_seconds) in the Page Views log?

When looking at Page Views as an admin, I see some columns with a "Time" value (which corresponds to the "interaction_seconds" column in the CSV download). What kind of actions count toward this value? How is it calculated / logged? I'm just trying to figure out what this value can tell us.


Example scenario - can it be used to judge whether or not a student was trying to submit an assignment, in order to confirm / refute claims of technical problems while trying to submit? So, if a student shows 120s in that column, it is fair to say they were doing something for 120s on that page - but what kinds of things could that be?


The guides are woefully unhelpful on this...anyone have ideas?
