Average Time Per Test Question Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Average Time Per Test Question.

TPTQ = TT / #Q

Variables:

  • TPTQ is the Average Time Per Test Question (minutes per question)
  • TT is the total time for the test (minutes) 
  • #Q is the total number of test questions 

How to Calculate Average Time Per Test Question?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Average Time Per Test Question.


  1. First, determine the total time for the test (minutes). 
  2. Next, determine the total number of test questions. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TPTQ = TT / #Q.
  4. Finally, calculate the Average Time Per Test Question.
  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 for the test (minutes) = 60

total number of test questions = 30

TPTQ = TT / #Q = ?
