Would it be possible to provide instructors with a search function that would allow them to determine which students started taking a quiz at similar times? The query would be: "Show me the names and start & end times for all users who started this quiz within +/- 5 minutes of each other."
I know Canvas logs the start & stop times for individual users, so the data needed for this query is being captured. The question here is to provide a tool to search those records to see if sets of students in a class are consistently starting quizzes at the same time. This question is relevant for asynchronous quizzes, where students have an open window (e.g., 24 hours) within which to do a quiz and then a set time (e.g., 50 min.) to complete the quiz once they start. Under such conditions I could envision a scenario where a cohort of students band together to take the quizzes synchronously with one another, using a parallel chat (e.g., Discord, phone texting, etc.) to work through a quiz as a group, sharing answers with one another as they go. Such activity could be easily identified by searching for groups of students who consistently take quizzes at the same time.
