As a part of student pacing settings, you can choose between having a 60-minute time limit on assessments or no time limit at all. 

In this article, you will learn how to configure your student pacing settings to:

  • Hand-In Student Assessments Automatically 

  • Require Students to Manually Hand-In Assessments

Here's where you can manage these settings:

Step 1

Open your class and click on the Assignments tab. 

Step 2 

On the left menu, click on Student Pacing, listed under Advanced Tools.

Hand-In Student Assessments Automatically

If students go inactive from their computer for 60 minutes, while an assessment is in progress, the assessment will be automatically submitted for grading.  

Automatically handing in assessments after 60-minutes of inactivity is the default option for all assessment types: quizzes, tests, and exams. 

In the 60-minute window, a student is able to log out in the middle of an assessment, and their work will be saved. When the student logs back in, they will only be able to access the assessment.

Once those 60 minutes of inactivity have passed, the system will automatically turn in and grade the student’s assessment, regardless of whether it’s completed.

Require Students to Manually Hand-In Assessments

To have your student complete an assessment in more than one sitting, you can turn off this default setting by removing the check mark in the box for one or all assessment types.

When the box is unchecked, your students will have an unlimited amount of time to complete an assessment, even if they sign out. Students will be brought directly to the assessment each time they sign in until they manually click the Hand-In button.

Teachers must configure this before students begin an assessment for it to work.
