Did you know that Students can view the time remaining in a quiz in hours, minutes and seconds?



When students are taking quizzes with time limits they are able to see the timer in intervals of hours, minutes and seconds. 

  • If a quiz is set for more than an hour long, the clock flashes when there are 10 minutes remaining.
  • If a quiz is set for less than an hour long, the clock flashes when there are 5 minutes remaining.
  • Regardless of the set timer, the clock flashes when there is 1 minute remaining.
