I would like to prevent students from "continuing attempts" of quiz that is set to have a time limit and to allow only one attempt.
This is what currently happens. A student starts a quiz, a sercure window opens, they start the quiz, but when they close the secure window without submitting/saving answers, they have the ability to continue the attempt because the predefined time has not expired.
It seems that moodle counts an attempt in relation to time and not by the number of instances the quiz was started. If I set the quiz to have a 5 minute time limit I can open the quiz infinite number of times until my 5 minutes is up or I click on submit. By open I mean closing secure window, and clicking "Continue the last attempt."
For the most part, this feature is appreciated, because it allows the student to continue the quiz if someone suddenly unplugged their computer. But there are situations where this is not appreciated because some students have found this as a way to cheat, that is to preview the quiz questions, look at their notes, and then take the quiz.
Does anyone have a work-around?
