Canvas Quiz Autosubmit Feature

Quizzes have an autosubmit feature tied to the Until (lock) date, which may affect student submissions. Only quiz attempts that have been started are auto-submitted. Common quiz scenarios and date results include the following:  

  • No dates: quiz is never marked late and autosubmitted at course conclude (see course settings)
  • Due date only: quiz is marked late at Due date and autosubmitted at course conclude (see course settings)
  • Due date with Until date: quiz is marked late at Due date and autosubmitted at Until date
  • Time limit: quiz is autosubmitted when time expires (only applies when students are actively taking a quiz)
  • Time limit with Until date: quiz is autosubmitted when time expires unless the Until date expires first

Example:

Test Window:

Available From  Jul 9 @ 8 am

Available Until Jul 9 @ 12 pm

Quiz Duration:  60 minutes 

Scenario 1:

Student 1 - Starts the quiz at 8 am and completes it in 45 minutes.  The quiz is submitted when the student submits it. 

Student 2 - Starts the quiz at 11:30 am and is still taking the quiz when the Until time is reached.  The quiz is autosubmitted.

Student 3 - Student was granted extra time, 30 minutes, through Moderate This Quiz so student has a total of 90 minutes to complete exam.  Student starts at 8:30 am and completes it at 9:45 am when it is submitted.

Student 4:  Student was granted extra time, 30 minutes, through Moderate This Quiz so student has a total of 90 minutes to complete exam.  Student starts at 11 am and is still working on it when it autosubmits at 12 pm.  The Until time overrides any additional time set in Moderate This Quiz.
