Why should I never use force completion What it’s supposed to do Prevent students from leaving an exam to go consult other information sources. What it actually does Cause students who experience a brief internet connectivity problem to be kicked out of their test, which is then automatically submitted and cannot be re-joined. The instructor must clear the attempt and allow the student to re-take the entire test. Effect of the test timer No Effect: whether you use force completion or not, the test timer keeps on tickigng once the exam is started, even if the student’s computer drops the network connection. Using the auto submit option ensures that students do not take more time than given.
