Viewing the Time Stamp during Exams/Quizzes

Jump to solution

Is there anyway I can have the timestamp during my exams/quizzes follow my screen as I work on questions and scroll down? I find it tedious taking a 50 question exam (for instance) and scrolling to the top of the page to see how much time I have left when I am working on the last set of questions. 

Maybe somewhere on settings?

Hello there, @cpsang ...

It sounds like your school may still be using the current/classic version of the Canvas quizzing engine...which has the issue you've described.  In New Quizzes, it sounds like seeing the time at all times is not an issue.  But I am not sure if your school has decided if and/or when they will be turning that "on" for you, your classmates, and your instructors.  That would be a question you'd need to have with people at your school.  My response here is based on a previous Feature Idea that has now been archived: Moving Quiz Timer/Countdown - Canvas Community.  Please make sure to read the response from @Stefanie in that topic.  Thanks!  Stay safe, and be well.
