Timed Quiz Time Up Alert Box

As a student taking timed quizzes through Canvas, sometimes I run up to the end of the timer. When 10 seconds hits an alert window pops up and counts down 10 seconds with the option of clicking the "X" on the alert window or a button. The times that I've used the "X" the quiz gets submitted before the 10 seconds are fully up. Besides this, I believe the use of an alert box is not very appropriate in this situation. Perhaps a banner would be a better choice since that would provide notice and not force you to waste those last seconds clicking on something that isn't helping you complete the timed quiz.
Just thought I'd start a discussion and hopefully be able to propose an idea for change.
