Test Plan:

As instructor add Statistics and Tests and Quizzes to a course with multiple students.
To test this you'll also need database access.

Create a new assessment

  • One multiple choice question is fine


  • Unlimited submissions
  • Available now
  • Due (Sometime out in the future)
  • Time limit (short, like 1 minute)
  • Last submissions accepted (No, not after due date)


Login as a student.
Take the assessment, mark an answer to the question
Save (not submit) and leave the assessment by closing the browser or clicking on another tool.

Now you'll need to look at the events in the database.
SELECT EVENT,SESSION_ID FROM sakai_trunk.SAKAI_EVENT where EVENT like 'sam%' order by EVENT_ID DESC;

If this is working the session_id of the timer thread events should match the session id of the taken events.

For instance this does not match
'sam.assessment.submit.timer.thre', '~matt-VirtualBox~9d85638b-5ada-4fcd-8c3b-752560d32eb1'
'sam.assessment.submit.thread', '~matt-VirtualBox~9d85638b-5ada-4fcd-8c3b-752560d32eb1'
'sam.assessment.take', 'a0da0ec8-ea48-4bb7-a9f4-9e53d6ca9d2f'


If an event is posted from the timer thread (and possibly auto-submit job) it isn't able to be linked back to the user that actually submitted the assessment. It is a "dummy" session matching the server. Ideally a session should be created for that user to the event is correct. See test plan

This looks to also fix SAM-2788 need to test that one too. This one actually might be testable via the UI just by looking at the event log (or maybe sitestats?)

Comment by Derek Ramsey [ 23-Jun-2017 ]

Verified on 12x nightly that the events for context and session ID have proper values after timer submit.
