Once a student starts an assessment, can they close their computer and finish another time? Or do they need to finish the assessment in order to submit it?
A student can submit the assignment at any time, as long as the assignment settings allow it. Some things that would prevent a student from submitting are a scheduled close date on the assignment (and the date has been reached).
Thank you. I actually meant once they start the assignment are they able to close it and finish it at a later date? Or does it all need to be completed in one sitting?
An assignment does not have to be completed in one sitting - i.e. they can start the assignment, walk away and come back days later and everything done until they walked away remains. However, as @chris1 says, it depends on the settings you decided on.
- If you set it up as one submission by selecting either “Make hidden” or “keep visible (no edits allowed)”, they will only be able to submit once.
- If you close the assignment by either manually closing or setting a close date, students will only be able to take the assignment and submit/or not during the time it is open.
Thank you for clarifying! Makes sense!
