Cron takes too long to complete - It stucks on "Running completion_criteria_activity->cron()"

I realized that my first sentence may be confuse...
The windows scheduler is set to run the cron job every 3 minutes but since the cron task "Running completion_criteria_activity->cron()" sometimes takes over an hour to complete the next cron job only begins when the previous ends. My question in fact is: if this task is updating students status and lets say, if there are at a given point in time 500 students to update, the #1 student only sees his status updated when the cron task updates the #500 student? Is this a transaction that makes the COMMIT at the #500 student?
