It's been a while since I've done any timing, but as I recall this is
exactly the way it works (or used to work) when you set a time limit on a
folder. This is how you can administer, for example, a 2-hr exam. I think
you've got two options--set the parameter at the resource level, or give the
sequence a 90 minute time limit. Although the latter is not exactly what

If you're using the actual spreadsheet, I think this should be possible
without much effort. I don't know about the other "gradebook" methods.
What, exactly, do you mean when you say, "in the spreadsheet"?
