Time limit

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

If you do specify a time limit, then several things are done to try and ensure that assessments 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 assessment 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 assessment is automatically graded zero
