Time limit

By default, quizzes do not have a time limit, which allows students as much time as they need to complete the quiz.

If you do specify a time limit, the several things are done to try and ensure that quizzes are completed within that time:

  • Javascript support in the browser becomes mandatory - this allows the timer to work correctly.
  • A floating timer window is shown with a countdown
  • When the timer has run out, the quiz is submitted automatically with whatever answers have been filled in so far
  • If a student manages to cheat and spends more than 60 seconds over the allotted time then the quiz is automatically graded zero
