|Online educational systems can easily measure both answers and response times. Student modeling, however, typically focuses only on correctness of answers. In this work we analyze response times from a widely used system for adaptive practice of geography facts. Our results show that response times have simple relationship with the probability of answering correctly the next question about the same item. We also analyze the overall speed of students and its relation to several aspects of students' behaviour within the system.
