This article will explain how to configure the timer settings for Exams
The timer settings for Dynamic Exams are relatively simple. All you need to do is select the total length of the exam on the Configure page of the Exam set up menu (1). Apart from setting this timer manually, the other option would be to have the system infer the timer from individual questions (2) This is set to 2 minutes per question.
Static Exams draw from one Quiz. The configuration on that Quiz can affect how the Exam timer is inferred, regardless of what you set on the Configure page of the Exam set up menu. This is especially true when the source Quiz has Sections.
The table below shows which settings you need at which point to infer the timer you want
|Desired Exam Time Format||Settings on Source Quiz||Settings on Exam Configure Page|
|Overall Time for Exam (without Sections)||Can be anything, will be overridden||The timer set here will be used|
|Overall Time for Exam (with Sections)||Ensure the Timer is disabled on Configure page||The timer set here will be used|
|Individual Section Times||
Ensure the Timer is enabled on Configure page. Set Section timers on Section page
The timer here will be overridden by the source quizzes Section timers. This includes inferring the time from individual questions
Note - If you have 'Infer timer from individual questions' toggled on in the source Quizzes Sections, this is the time that will be user.
