Enter the total time (min) and the total number of responses into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Average Response Time. 

Average Response Time Formula



  • ART is the Average Response Time (min per response)
  • T is the total time (min)
  • R is the total number of responses

To calculate Average Response Time, divide the total time by the total number of responses.

How to Calculate Average Response Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Average Response Time.

  1. First, determine the total time (min). 
  2. Next, determine the total number of responses. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = ART = T/R.
  4. Finally, calculate the Average Response Time.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total time (min) = 300

total number of responses = 2
