What happens if students submit answers after the quiz closing date?

It is possible for students to still submit answers after the quiz has closed (for example if they started the attempt before the closing date but then took a long time before submitting). These responses are stored by the quiz module, but the students are not given any credit for them. The teacher can see these answers when reviewing the student's attempts and can give the student credit for them by hand. Also the teacher could change the closing date after the fact and regrade the attempts. The students answers would then get graded.


Why Can't I set a longer quiz timelimit?

The maximum quiz timelimit seems to be 10 minutes less than the session timeout set for moodle. (In 1.6 quiz timelimit will not be limited by session timeout). If you want longer quiz timelimits in 1.5, you would need to log in as administrator, and click "Configuration" under the administration section on the main page, then click "Variables", and find "Session Timeout", and set it to somthing longer.

Session timeout is the length of time the site will allow a user to be inactive (not loading pages) before they are automatically logged out (and presumabally lose some session data if they were still working - albeit slowly). There isn't really any serious problem setting this to 2 or even 3 hours - as long as the student isn't silly enough to leave a shared computer with their login active on the server. Long story short - logout when done.
