Automatic timer increase after failed quiz attempts


I'd like to know if it's possible to make something like this please :

  • First quiz attempt - 15 minutes timer
  • Second attempt after failing first one - 20 minutes
  • Third attemps after failing second one - 40 minutes

This would achieve at least two things :

  • Reduce Internet use for first attempt.
  • Reward students that achieve the quiz the first time (giving them a badge or something else in a gamified LMS)

Anyway, is that possible ?

Thanks !

Hi Garry,

Thanks for reaching out! It looks like you can only set one timer within a quiz results page.

I appreciate you sharing how you'd like to use different timers for multiple attempts and would be happy to pass your thoughts on to our product team, but you can also feel free to detail them more through a feature request

Thanks for your answer.

It would be as follows :

  • You set a short timer for the first attempt, which makes it harder for students to look for info on Internet.
  • If the first quiz attempt is failed, then the user would restarts the quiz, but this time with more time.

Basically, it would allow to have a better assesment of online students, while rewarding the best students who make it on the first time, and giving more time to students to pass the quiz for subsequent attempts.
