[Suggestion] Allow to finish current exercise when timer runs out in Timed Practice
In Timed Practice, I often manage hit 'Submit' just after the timer runs out, and I get no points, even when I answered correctly.
I would like to be allowed to complete the last exercise even if the timer runs out during it.
Maybe this is too complicated, but I think it would also be nice if the timer could pause if we open the window to read the discussion comments for a question. Sometimes I want to see what others have said but don't have time to look because I would run out of time and the lesson would end.
That is a good idea, I also often want to look at the comments but do not have the time.
An alternative could be to add a sort of review of the exercises you completed, after finishing the session. That way the flow of the timed practice is not interrupted, and you can take your time to look at comments, check dictionary hints and report issues if you spotted any.
most of us on here would agree with that, as many have already voiced their concerns on this topic.
At present, if the counter is at 7 seconds or less, I usually accept the round as over and wait out the clock. This is a bit inefficient in the long run, and getting credit for an answer I started typing before the timer reached zero would cause me to attempt more sentences.
I imagine that Timed Practice is one of the more complex features (both in terms of coding and user habits) on this site, and it will probably take a few rounds of tinkering before most everyone is satisfied with the result.
