Time limit limitation
A Korean instructor contacted me re the new "Auto-submit when time is up" feature in Quizzes. There seems to be a lack of connection between "Time Limit" and "Due Date". This is a problem because these two features need to talk to each other. Here is where we see the issue:
e.g. Let's assume that a quiz is added to Course X with a "Due Date" of September 27 at 11:00 AM. The quiz also has a 60 minute "Time Limit" after which it is set to automatically submit.
The problem is, a student can start the quiz at 10:59 and continue working on it until 11:59 (essentially 59 minutes after the deadline). And, while it is true that the submission will be flagged as late, this is just one more step that instructors have to take when assessing a student's quiz submission…one more decision to make…do I accept this submission or not?
What I think should happen is that, if a quiz has a due date with a specified time, the quiz should auto-save and submit itself at that time. For instance, in our example, the quiz should submit 1 minute after the student starts.
