Moderated Quiz Expired before Time was Up

Jump to solution

I recently had an instructor give a quiz in Canvas with the following settings: Time limit = 75 minutes, Due date = 9/24/18 10:45 am, Available from = 9/24/18 9:30 am, Available until = 9/24/18 10:45 am.  The instructor then used the "Moderate This Quiz" function to provide an extra 35 minutes to three students.  However, when the three students who received the extra time logged in and began their quiz, it showed that they only had 75 minutes to complete the exam.  When the students reached the 75 minute time limit the quiz expired.  Did the "Available Until" field override the extra amount of time set up in the Moderate Settings?

 @talway , yes, if the Instructor has the Until date set to expire before the 75 minutes was up then the students would have had their submission submitted at the Until date. Time limit does not supersede Until date. For more on this see the following document - Quiz Settings to Maximize Security

Hope this helps! Kona

Thank you for confirming what I thought to be true.  I will share this information with our instructors.
