Assignments tool: add a timer dimension AND/OR bulk-download file-response test question submissions

Idea created by heatherwoods on Oct 16, 2015

    We have a client that has a program examination scenario they would like Ultra courses to support: they want to be able to deploy a take-home essay exam such that the following conditions are all met:

    1. Student response is in the form of a document/file-upload

    2. Test/Assignment is only available for a certain date range

    3. Once accessed, students have a set amount of time (hours/minutes timer) to submit their work (ex: one hour)

    4. Submitted responses can be easily graded, EITHER by batch-downloading all documents (to grade locally) or by using in-line grading individually (or BOTH).


    Since the current (9.1) Test tool offers 1, 2, and 3 but not 4; and Assignments offer 1, 2, and 4, but not 3...


    and upon considering their specific use-case, the easiest way to address it would be if they could limit the time-to-submit of an Assignment the way that a timer can be placed on a Test. They could then use the Assignments tool to accomplish this aim.


    Alternatively (or in addition) it would be nice if the Tests tool would allow bulk-download of "file-response" test questions for grading and/or open such questions (if one graded by question) in the inline grader.
