does apple/macintosh offer an application that creates a database of the application the user is using and the time they used that application and how long they used it for?  this is for a computer lab in a middle school and we have to monitor what apps the students are using and how long they are using them for.

Oh heavens...some of the links on the page do not work. I suggest that you read up on the utility that you are interested in and try this link to download what you like:

You may be interested in the timeslice options, of which there are two, one commercial - timeslice-172.hqx - and one shareware - time-slice-lite-31.hqx.
