What does "Stopped viewing the Canvas quiz-taking page..." mean in the quiz log? Does this mean they opened a new window or tab?

This is the first time I have seen this. The student was taking the quiz while not under my direct observation and their score was higher than normal.  Does this mean anything?

The log also shows if the student stopped viewing the Canvas quiz-taking page [4]. Not viewing the quiz-taking page can occur from being inactive within Canvas for more than 30 seconds (including navigating to another Canvas page), or clicking out of the quiz (such as on another browser tab or window) for more than 15 seconds.


When the student returns to the quiz by moving or clicking the computer mouse, the log shows the status as resumed."

Canvas isn't a lockdown browser - there is nothing preventing any student from opening another tab and looking up information.
