No, I think 2.11 - Stuart?

That would help tremendously during the "last moments" of a timed test as it would avoid a minor nuisance when some students kept working on a question for five minutes and did not realize that it had already timed out four-and-a-half minutes ago. "Dream" feature, perhaps? Maybe there are tools outside of Lon capa that a script can call to work in tandem with a timed test?

It's your lucky day:
