true true i admit that much, but i remember the days of good old common sense in web ct and even elm. both systems allowed the user to save his/her answers and not submit in the same instant. that way if the user wishes to review or edit their answers they can do so at a later time. once you submit your answers there is no going back.
Sometimes analogies make sense, this one does for a paper system, but It is not a piece of paper they do not have access to. it is electronically saved. they have all the answers i saved. yet when the time runs out, instead of the system submitting my saved answers by default. the system simply discards the answers I have.
yes broken systems have solutions that require people to do extra work to live with, but why not have a better system. why decrease in quality. if both elm and web-ct supported this, surly it is not impossible to make it work in the current system.
Instead of just venting on the forums though I would like to get this complaint to someone who can do something about it. I sent the guys at avenue to learn my concerns and suggestions. that was five weeks ago. no reply and no answer.
