Duration time

Dear TAO- Team,
when exporting results from the back office, information about the time that a testtaker needed to work on the item is lost. Let s say a testtaker took 1:34 min to work on an item. In the exported csv-file only the seconds are noted (--> duration = 34.0000 s). Is there a solution about this problem yet?
Best regards


  • You would need to convert the seconds

    Dear TAO-Team,
    are we talking about the same issue? In my opinion there is nothing I could convert. If I am checking the results in the TAO BackOffice, time that a testtaker spent with a specific item is given as follows: "PT3M17.402604S". When converting the results into a table, it says the duration was "17.402604". Or do I just not get it?
    Best regards

  • Can you provide the whole line from the CSV?

  • I attached the txt-file (csv did not work) and a screenshot of the back office result section

  • There will be a fix for this in the next release so that the CVS reflects in seconds what is in the interface

  • Hi Amy,
    I have the same problem. Is the problem fixed?
    If so: Is a new version released with the fix - or would I be able to get the update from github? (which files?)

  • I am not sure in which branch and repo it was fixed in, I do know the fix will be in the next version release.

  • I tried to install the development version of the extension, but I get the error below

    composer require oat-sa/extension-tao-outcomeui

    sudo php tao/scripts/installExtension oat-sa/extension-tao-outcomeui

    PHP Fatal error: Uncaught An error occured during the installation of extension 'oat-sa/extension-tao-outcomeui'.
    thrown in /var/www/tao33/tao/helpers/InstallHelper.php on line 46

    Now I cannot export anything.

    Any idea what I did wrong?

  • What PHP and TAO version are you on? Also you may need to install npm.

  • I am using PHP and TAO 3.3.0-RC02.
    I just installed npm and retried, but I get the same error.

  • Amy, did you have an idea of what goes wrong here? It would be a big help to get the correct duration data out and into our analysis of the student responses.
    Thanks in advance for you help.

    The right way to install an extension would be this:

    sudo php tao/scripts/installExtension taoOutcomeUi

    You have to use the name of the extension which can be found in manifest.php of each extension.

    I hope this helps.
