Time Delay between Quiz Retakes

Idea created by Douglas Kunze on Oct 21, 2016
    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas


    Hi Folks,

    As a corporate customer we require our students to pass a certification exam, scoring 80 points (or higher) out of 100 possible points. If a student fails the certification exam (< 80 points) on their first attempt, they can attempt the exam two additional times (for a total of three possible attempts). However, in a traditional ILT class, the student is required to wait a minimum of 12 hours before retaking the certification exam. The current Canvas Quiz Engine provides me with the ability to configure multiple attempts, however, it does not allow me to assign a time period between each attempt. Can this functionality be included in the upcoming release of the Canvas Quiz Engine?

    Thank you,

    Doug Kunze
