LMS

Special Exams

Learners who complete a proctored exam now receive emails to confirm their exam submission as well as when proctoring review results are available. The text in these emails is now more descriptive and helps learners understand when their exams will be reviewed, and why they have passed or failed proctoring (TNL-6482)

For special exams, the student exam attempts table and proctored exam report now correctly assign the “finished at” column timestamp. Previously this column made it seem like some learners were unfairly receiving more time to complete their exam. (TNL-6111)

Open Response Assessments

Deadlines for open response assessments now correctly display in the learner’s time zone. (TNL-6501)
