    The time it takes to show quiz results is getting longer since 6.4.5. I’m talking specifically about the time between pressing the “Check Answers” button and when results are displayed. Here are average times (6 repeated instances) for recent plugin versions:

    6.4.5 – 0.784 seconds
    6.4.8 – 1.344 seconds (1.71 times as long as 6.4.5)
    6.4.10 – 1.761 seconds (2.25 times as long as 6.4.5)

    Details of how I tested…
    Environment:
    Run a COPY of the our live site on a local development server powered by Laragon.
    Site copied from live to local via the Duplicator plugin.
    Laragon’s Apache server is version 2.4.35-win64-VC15.
    I modified Apache’s httpd.conf to provide milliseconds timestamp resolution.
    No other local sites are running, nor are any other local programs except the browser, currently Brave version Version 1.8.95 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit)
    Same plugins as live site, except a minification/optimization plugin is deactivated.

    Test process:
    Always use the same quiz post, the local equivalent of https://www.evaeaston.com/phrasal-verbs-test/.
    Note: this is a 12 question, randomized, multiple-choice quiz for non-logged-in users. It has NO email notices to reduce the ‘send email’ time variable.

    1. clear the browser cache
    2. refresh the “phrasel-verbs-test” post.
    3. scroll to the bottom of the quiz without answering any questions.
    4. press the “Check Answers” button and wait for the screen to repaint.
    5. open the httpd access.log
    6. copy out the last three lines.
    7. repeat steps 1-6 8 times.
    8. calculate time between first 2 lines of each test instance
    1st line is the POST from pressing the “Check Answers” button.
    2nd line is the GET for the facebook icon that is painted immediately after the quiz repaint.
    9. discard longest and shortest.
    10. average out the remaining.

    Thanks, Bob. For providing us the minute details. I am forwarding this issue to the development team and they will resolve this issue soon.

    Thanks Kriti,
    Here is yet more information. Wanting to know “what is going on inside?”, I added logging messages to some of the QSM modules in both 6.4.5 and 6.4.10. I used the same local server setup described earlier. This time with WP-DEBUG set to TRUE and with a log_me routine that writes log messages to the debug log. Since the debug log had a timestamp resolution that goes only to the nearest second, I prefaced each of the messages with a microseconds timestamp. The logging routine in my theme’s functions.php looks like this:

    function log_me($message) {
        if ( WP_DEBUG === true ) {
            if ( is_array($message) || is_object($message) ) {
                error_log( print_r($message, true) );
            } else {
                error_log( gettimeofday()['usec'] . ' ' . $message );  /* microseconds added */
            }
        }
    }

    I placed log_me messages immediately after each of the ‘public function….’ lines in qmn-quiz-manager and qsm-emails modules, and one extra just before the $return_array for the results page redirect … about line #1125.

    Then, I ran 6 tests each as described earlier.

    NOTE WELL: There are 2 areas of interest.
    The first is immediately after the POST action that is started by pressing the “Check Answers” button. Examine the time between the post and the first log message inside qmn-quiz-manger, the ajaz_submit_results routine. I’ve noted the time intervals in the following log files.
    Look for “n.nnn since POST.”

    Note that with 6.4.5, that time interval ranges from 0.285 seconds to 0.409 seconds, and with 6.4.10 it ranges from 1.108 to 1.351 seconds,
    substantially longer. I did not dig deeper to find the code between those 2 events, but it seems a good place to look.

    The second place to note is the time between “results logged in db” and the fetch of the facebook icon. There is about 3 fourths of a second of email processing time there, even though I have no emails specified. That time delays rendering the results on screen. Maybe it can be moved after “prep data for front end?”

    Notice also, 2 images that help clarify where information is in the following log data.

    THANKS again for your interest.

    Log results follow…

    Seeing that the changelog for 6.4.11 mentions reducing queries, I ran some tests again. This time, exactly as described in the May 11, 11:46 post in this thread.

    6.4.5 averages 0.784 seconds
    6.4.10 averages 1.761 seconds – 2.24 times slower than 6.4.5
    6.4.11 averages 1.134 seconds – 1.44 times slower than 6.4.5 Better! … but not enough.

    BTW, these are optimal, in a very controlled environment. When live online, mixed with all the rest of the internet chaos, they are significantly slower. And every second of delay causes 7% loss of audience.

    Better. Is the team still looking to improve more?

    Hi Bob,

    Yes, our team is still working on to improve the plugin. Hopefully we will fix the issue in the next plugin update.

    Kind regards,

    6.4.12 is slower than ever in grading answers. What a big disappointment!

    It is now 3.17 times slower than 6.4.5. (testing technique is the same as before)
    The average time to return grading for a 12 question multiple choice quiz is now 2.493 seconds. A typical visitor isn’t going to wait much longer than a second when expecting the next page … especially if there is absolutely no sign of activity.

    If the development plan is to continue adding features (they all eat time) without focusing on performance, then maybe it is time to add an hourglass, activity spinner, or progress bar while calculating answers.

    Keeping my live site at 6.4.5.

    Version 7.0.0 is now 5 times slower than 6.4.5 when evaluating quiz results. It keeps getting worse with every update. Below are the times for various levels, all tested exactly as described above, with exactly the same quiz, on a very controlled local server environment.

    Time to calculate answers for a 12 question multiple choice quiz … with NO email results.
    6.4.5 averages 0.784 seconds
    6.4.10 averages 1.761 seconds – 2.24 times slower than 6.4.5
    6.4.11 averages 1.134 seconds – 1.44 times slower than 6.4.5 — Better! – some db calls reduced
    6.4.12 averages 2.493 seconds – 3.17 times slower than 6.4.5
    7.0.0 averages 3.926 seconds – 5.00 times slower than 6.4.5

    Two good things changed with this version:
    1. Finally, a spinner has been added to give people some sense that something is actually happening. That might persuade a few not to abandon the site.
    2. I see a second POST activity for an email action. Perhaps emailing has been taken out of the answer loop and deferred? I haven’t confirmed that with testing yet.
