Summary of Issue: Limits on user controlled timed events
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Refers to the Users\' ability to control timed events. An exception could be when timed tests are being presented. In such a case one might not want a student to have control over the time limits, but rather allow a third party (e.g. the teacher) to grant extra time as appropriate given the test takers limitations. In most academic institutions a suitable extended time is determined through evaluation of a student\'s ability (e.g. psycological, physical, occupational assessments) and granted, for instance:  time and a half, double time etc, on tests. 

Proposed Change:
Perhaps as an additional line with Essential Exceptions -”In cases where users control over timed events would invalidate the outcome, a third party can control timed events  for the user (for example, granting double time on a test)”
