Add Sys Admin configurable Assessment Timeout Setting

    After discussions with Managed Hosting we have decided it would preferable to have a System Admin configurable Assessment Timeout value.

    Possibly within the Assessment Building Block.

     

    To give context to this suggestion, we have seen an increased usage of longer essay questions for formative assessments which can take longer than the default 20 minutes. We also find that auto-save doesn't always function reliably. These two issues together have led to a students work being lost during recent exams.

     

    From the log extract below it can be seen that after 45 minutes the password screen is shown again causing the student to lose what had been typed in that time.

     

    If we were able to easily increase the timeout it would be a way to reduce the chance of a recurrence of this issue.
