If a student doesn't complete a test or quiz by the end of the period and you want them to finish the next day, how do you pause the test, or stop the test without submitting it?
There is not a pause feature. Once a quiz has been started, it will run for as long as it is set to run and then will auto-submit. There is a discussion around this in the The specified item was not found., but you have to not set a time limit.
In Student Guide, explain how to pause and resume a quiz
Craig, it depends on whether the quiz is timed or not. Unfortunately you can't "pause" a timed quiz. The time keeps going once a student starts the quiz and will auto-submit at the end of the time limit. If there isn't a time limit on the quiz, then the student can just get out of the quiz and come back to it later and Canvas will automatically save all of their answers/work until they come back and finish and submit it. The only caveat to this is if you have an "Until" date set on the quiz - if you do then the quiz will also auto-submit at the "until" date.
Hope this helps!
