Create a Quiz with an Auto-Submission

There is not an auto-submission option within TCU Online, but you can adjust the settings to prevent students from making additional changes. Preventing further changes after a specified time period will leave students with the choice to only submit their quiz, and thus initiating an auto-submission quiz. To create a quiz that will imitate an auto-submitted quiz, complete the following steps.

  1. On the navbar, click the Activities menu, then select Quizzes.
    Quizzes on the Nav Bar
  2. On the Manage Quizzes page, from the context menu of the quiz, click Edit.edit quiz
  3. Click on the Restrictions tab.
    Quiz restrictions tab
  4. In the Timing area, click on the radio button for Enforced Time Limit.
    quiz enforce time limit
  5. Enter a Time Limit and Grace Period.

  6. In the Exceeded Time Limit Behaviour area, select the radio button for Prevent the student from making further changes.
    quiz exceeded time limit behavior
  7. Click Save and Close.

This ensures that students cannot alter their responses at the end of the time limit and serves the same purpose as an auto-submit.
