The Intensity Score measures how much keyboard and mouse activity a user has during the day. By analyzing the activity of users, Crossover concluded that a timecard can be considered "highly active" if during the 10-minute time card, the user performed:
- At least 300 keystrokes
- At least 50 mouse clicks or scrolls
How it works
Let’s say a timecard has 187 keyboard strokes, and 33 mouse clicks. The Intensity Score for that timecard is:
Intensity Score = (187 + 33) / (300 + 50) = 63%
If either of the two values exceed the limit (300 for keyboard strokes and 50 for mouse clicks), then the value is the limit.
For example, let’s say a timecard has 412 keyboard strokes, and 33 mouse clicks. The Intensity Score for that timecard is:
Intensity Score = (300 + 33) / (300 + 50) = 95%
To calculate the Intensity Score for the entire day, we first calculate the score of all time cards throughout the day. Intensity Score throughout the day is determined based on the keyboard and mouse data.
Then, we count how many timecards -on average- the user should log in a given day. Someone whose weekly hour limit is 40 hours should work around 8 hrs a day, which equals 48 timecards of 10 minutes each. To calculate the Intensity Score of the day, we add up the score of all time cards in a day and divide that by the number of timecards in a day (48 in the example below).
Example - Intensity Score of the day
Sum of Intensity Score of all timecards = 31.9 (3192%)
Intensity Score = 31.9 / 48 = 67%
To calculate the Intensity Score for the entire week, we first count how many timecards the worker should have in the week. Someone with a weekly hour limit of 40 hours should have around 240 timecards.
The Intensity Score of the week is the average score of the top 240 timecards of the week.
