Setting Lock Time on a Quiz

Question asked by Kristina Kaye on Dec 6, 2015

I searched through the guides and discussions but didn't find a clear answer to my question.


I want to give my students 1 hour 50 minutes to take a MC quiz. The start time is 1:00 p.m. EST. The lock time needs to be 2:50 p.m. EST.  If I sent the "available until" time to 2:50 p.m. will it automatically time out and lock even if they are in the middle of the quiz? I know they won't be able to start after the "available until" time but I wasn't sure if that applied to students already in it.   It is an open materials activity so I don't need to lock it down or anything - they can access it from anywhere, I just have to be sure they only get 1 hr 50 min.


I also have the time limit set to 110 minutes but if I read the Guide correctly that time doesn't start until they actually start the quiz so if they start at 1:15 p.m. then it will not time out at 2:50 p.m. correct? Does this mean I should not use this feature?


I hope I stated my questions clearly. Thanks in advance.  :-)
