 Quizzes with a time limit will display a countdown timer for students as they progress through the questions:


  • If the timer runs out, the student's quiz is automatically submitted and any unanswered questions are marked as incorrect.
  • Students will see the Passed results page if:
    • They earn a passing score even if the time expired, or
    • They earn a passing score after their answers are manually graded
  • Students will see the Failed results page if: 
    • They earned a failing score after the time expired, or
    • They earned a failing score after their answers are manually graded, or
    • They didn't answer enough automatically graded questions correctly even if the quiz requires additional manual grading
  • Students will see the Requires Grading results page if:
    • The time limit has expired and there are questions that require manual grading to determine their score
  • Every quiz results page will outline the number of questions that were answered along with the elapsed time. 
  • Quizzes with time limits will show the applicable time limit on your Analytics > Quizzes page
