Periodically we get the following: "I just realized that I don't have 
credit for any of the timed quizzes that I've taken." Our guess is that 
these people are forgetting to hit "submit answer" before they move on to 
the next question.

The natural place for me to gravitate towards is the "view activity" 
function. This leads me to another problem. On capa2 this function seems 
to work spottily at best. I realize that the process takes a while, but I 
think I need to understand this process a bit better.

* What information in general is stored in what file for the student?

* Is mysql involved at all? How is the query processed? A separate process 
from the Apache child?

* What are 'typical' times for queries? 10s of seconds? Multiple minutes?

* Should one reload the page or click "View more activity by this 
student" to access more information?
