Three quizzes were developed for the purpose of this experiment. Each quiz was completed and submitted after the time limits to determine the effect of the timing restrictions. The questions for each quiz were identical, but the Timing restrictions were modified in the following manner:
Condition 1: Set a Time Limit, Grace Period, and Use Late Limit, as well as select enforced and show clock.Condition 1 results: The quiz submission was flagged in red as late, and the student received a 0 for the quiz.
Condition 2: Set a Time Limit and Grace Period, as well as select enforced and show clock.Condition 2 results: The quiz submission was only flagged in red as late. Points were given to the student for the correct quiz answers.
Condition 3: Set a Time Limit, Grace Period, and Use Late Limit with only show clock selected.
Condition 3 results: The quiz submission was not flagged as late, and the student received points for the correct quiz answers.Overall, selecting the enforced restriction flags late quiz submissions in red. This can be helpful to instructors who want to know which students exceeded the allotted quiz time. Using a Late Limit in conjunction with enforced not only flags the quiz as late, but the student will be given 0 points for the quiz. Instructors should be cautious about using Late Limit with the enforced restriction unless they plan to be strict about granting 0 points for late quiz submissions.
Additionally, students will know how much time is allowed and how much time is spent on the quiz as this clock is always in upper left hand corner: Est. Length: 0:05:00 Time Taken: 0:03:00.
