The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between the psychological variables and online behavioral patterns of students, collected through a learning management system (LMS). As the psychological variable, time and study environment management (TSEM), one of the sub-constructs of MSLQ, was chosen to verify a set of time-related online log variables: login frequency, login regularity, and total login time. Data was collected from 188 college students in a Korean university. Employing structural equation modeling, a hypothesized model was tested to measure the model fit. The results presented a criterion validity of online log variables to estimate the students' time management. The structural model, including the online variable TSEM, and final score, with a moderate fit, indicated that learners' online behavior related to time mediates their psychological functions and their learning outcomes. Based on the results, the final discussion includes recommendations for further study and meaningfulness in regards to extending the Learning Analytics for Performance and Action (LAPA) model.
