Better warning when a student is running out of time on a quiz?

Jump to solution

Okay, I know all the "basics" here, how to set up a timed quiz, and how to give a warning when the student is running low on time. What I'm asking about is the nature of that warning.

Currently, a tiny pop-up appears for five seconds. If I've got a student working on a problem (and looking at their scratch work), they could very easily miss this.

So my question is: Is there a way to add an audio signal to the warning? (Keeping the pop-up open longer would also help.)

There doesn't seem to be a way to do this in Canvas, or change the nature of the warning.

If I have to, I'm willing to create an audio file which automatically starts playing when the student starts taking the quiz.

Once again, there aren't any details on how to do this, just how to embed an audio file that the students can play when they want.

I don't think there is a way to do that yet, and so you might want to start a conversation about adding it as a feature:
