If your students are doing heavy tasks or you notice your students are timing out often, you can increase the timeout per step in AutoTest!
Each AutoTest step has a timeout time. If a single step takes longer than this timeout time, it will fail and AutoTest will continue with the next step. A timeout time is important, as you need to kill steps that get stuck to ensure an AutoTest to always finish.
Depending on your needs, you may want to increase or decrease the timeout time of the steps in an AutoTest category. For instance, because your students are performing heavy tasks in their code. Follow the steps below to change the timeout time (default timeout is 120 seconds):
Under the AutoTest tab, navigate to the category you want to change the timeout time for and press the Pencil Button to start editing it.
Scroll down and click on the Advanced Options dropdown button.
In this menu, find the "Timeout per step (seconds)" field and edit the timeout time for all the steps in this category and press Save.
Change the timeout time for all steps in an AutoTest category.
