Currently, I believe that in the original quizzes if a time limit is put on a quiz, the time continues running even if the window has been closed. Is this purposeful?
When a student is unable to finish their test and needs to stop at the end of class and resume at a later time, the clock continues to run and time runs out before they can return and finish the test.
I would love to see the option to set a time limit for quizzes that allows for a student to close the window and have the timer stop running until the test is reopened.
It seems as if it would be more useful to have a timer that is only running when the test if actually open and being taken. We have been unable to use the feature because there are too many times we need to discontinue a test and resume it at a later time.

Hello @sdavick ...
I would agree with @RobDitto that the Feature Idea he linked to would be looking at to see if it aligns with what you'd like to see in Canvas. Posting in this area of the Community is for asking questions and getting help from various Community members, and there isn't any opportunity to vote on ideas like there is with the Feature Idea that Rob linked for you.
Also, I wanted to share a few links with you as it relates to the Feature Idea process...so you have them as a reference for the future:
I hope this additional information will be of help to you, Sara.
Chris, thank you so much. I had not found this feature idea up for a vote. It would accomplish a lot of what I am trying to accomplish. I have added my thoughts to that thread.
