On Requiring minimal time for a Quiz


A user recently asked whether there is a way to require the student to review an exerquiz quiz for a minimal amount of time. That is, the student is not allowed to press the ‘End Quiz’ button until a specified length of time has elapsed since the ‘Begin Quiz’ button was pressed; for example, wants to allow a minimum of ten minutes for his students. This file represents my solution to this problem.

The technique uses my cntdwn package. (There are several articles on the cntdwn package on this blog site.) When the student presses the ‘Start’ button, the ‘End’ and ‘Correct’  buttons are hidden. After the countdown, the two buttons reappear and the student can then press `End’ to get his/her score and ‘Correct’ to get the markup.
