How does the quiz action log know when students stop and resume viewing the quiz?

Jump to solution

I have a student who claims the quiz closed before she was able to answer the questions.   The quiz action log shows that the quiz was open the entire allotted time ( see below)  How does the quiz activity log know when students stop and resume viewing the quiz? Can I rely on this log to determine if students were closed out of the quiz or not? Otherwise they could preview questions and then ask for a reset to take the test after finding the answers.

Hi  @jlambert3 
If the quiz log says that the student stopped viewing the quiz then this usually means one of two things:
1. They opened a new tab in their browser and viewed a different page there.

or
2. They stayed on the quiz page but were inactive (didn't type, click or scroll anywhere on the quiz page) for 30 seconds or more. Obviously this could happen if the question has a long section of text they need to read.

The quiz log will show that they resumed the quiz at the time that they next click/type somewhere on the quiz screen.

If the final action in your quiz log shows that they stopped viewing the quiz, it's difficult to determine whether this was due to the student navigating away/closing the browser tab without submitting, or a problem with the student's browser that caused it to suddenly shut down.

I just tried on mine and being inactive a long time (even 3 min) gave me no "stopped viewing the canvas page".

the time where it shows "stopped viewing the canvas page" is when I used the calculator. 

So I think that "stopped viewing the canvas page" means navigating out of it non?
