This study aims to explore time management strategies followed by students in a flipped classroom through the analysis of trace data. The study was conducted on the dataset collected in three consecutive offerings of an undergraduate computer engineering course (N=1, 134). Trace data about activities were initially coded for the timeliness of activity completion. Such data were then analyzed using agglomerative hierarchical clustering based on the Ward's algorithm, firsst order Markov chains, and inferential statistics to detect time management tactics and strategies from students' learning activities. The results indicate that meaningful and theoretically relevant time management patterns can be detected from trace daata as manifestations of students' tactics and strategies. In addition, this study also showed that time management tactics had significant associations with academic performance.
