Unfortunately, I don’t know of another way to give a timed assessment in Sakai. Faculty are being encouraged to lean heavily on the Honor Code right now. You could set a more generous time limit and remind students that the Honor Code is in effect. In the Settings for each assessment, you can check a box called Honor Pledge that requires students to affirm the pledge when they begin taking the assessment.

You can also minimize the number of page transitions students will have to make by minimizing the number of Sections within the assessment. In other words, put all of the questions in a single, long section rather than multiple small sections.
