How to Set a Time Limit on Google Forms

This morning I received a question from a teacher who was looking for a way to impose a time limit on a quiz or test administered through Google Forms. My suggestion was to try using the Google Forms Add-on called Form Limiter. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to install and use Form Limiter.

If you wanted to break your test into multiple sections in Google Forms, you could impose a time limit on each section. For example, let's say that you want to give a 30 question test. You could break that test into three sections of ten questions by making three separate Forms. At the end of each Form include a link to proceed to the next Form in the series. You would place the link in the "response accepted" message at the bottom of the Forms that you publish.
