Moodle Quiz cutoff time
What does the cutoff time for a Moodle Quiz control?
The Cutoff time prevents both starting a quiz and submitting an already-started quiz once that time is past. Instructors can check the unsubmitted saved answers and the answers are checked against the correct answers, but no grade is given (it looks like instructors can’t manually override it) and students cannot check their answers. If the cutoff time comes while students are taking the quiz, a warning message appears and once the cutoff time has passed, they cannot submit their answers.
This is what happened when I started a quiz before the cut-off time but didnâ€™t submit it when the time was up:
First, I got a warning saying â€œThe quiz is closing. You should submit your answers nowâ€. Then, when I clicked on the submit button two minutes past the due time, I got this message, â€œSorry, the quiz is not availableâ€. When I checked the test results, I found that if the quiz was delivered in multiple pages with â€œsubmitâ€ for each page, all the results that had been submitted before the timeout were saved.
