The traditional teaching process model is built on teachers’ knowledge transfer in lectures. However, the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) involves a change in the teaching-learning process, which implies more students’ autonomous work. The students’ effort is defined as the sum of the study time outside and in the classroom, both individually and in team. In this context, teachers impart knowledge, provide guides and schema and motivate students to achieve a meaningful learning. Therefore, student assessment comprises both attendance working and non-attendance working. As may be expected, non-attendance working is more difficult to quantify. Additionally, it is common that a high percentage of master's students have a job. Thus, time management for these students is a key factor to gain the sufficient understanding to pass the master subjects. Regarding to this issues, this work deals with quantification of students’ time spent on learning activities outside and in the classroom.
