Test Timers in Galileo

Note: Some optional features won't show up until you have selected a Class, Library, and Test.

To set a time limit for the test

While scheduling a test or editing a scheduled test:

1. Check the Timed Test checkbox

2. (optional) Check the Allow pause checkbox

3. Define the Test Time Limit by entering the number of minutes

Overview of Time Limit

When a student is taking a timed test, a countdown timer (in hours : minutes : seconds) will appear in the top-right corner of the testing page.

Once the time for the test has expired, the test will close and the student will not be able to gain access to the test again.

Exiting test if Allow Pause is not selected

Once a student starts a test, the time limit begins and continues even if a student logs out of the test. If a student logs back into the test before the time limit is up, they can pick up where they left off. If they log back into the test after the time limit has expired, they will see the following message:

Exiting test if Allow Pause is selected

Once a student starts the test, the time limit begins and continues for the student. To pause the test when logging out for the session, they will need to select the PAUSE icon within the time window. This will allow the student to resume the test on the following session with the remaining time.
