When a student views a timed quiz and time expires, Canvas auto-submits the quiz. However, if a student navigates away from the quiz page, the quiz submission remains outstanding. On the Moderate Quiz page, Canvas generates a warning message about the outstanding submission. This lesson shows you how to submit any outstanding submissions for a quiz at one time.
When students leave an untimed quiz without submitting, their submissions will not be considered outstanding. These submissions will be submitted and considered outstanding after an event occurs that attempts to calculate their quiz grade. These events may include ending of availability dates, deleting or editing the quiz, attempting to view the outstanding submission, and editing an assignment group.
