how does one set the clock to stop after say an hour, for timed tests?

Unfortunately, there is no built-in configuration option at this time that would limit the test time and force the user to finish the test. I do like the idea though, and will add it to our "Future Feature Wish List".... but it may not be feasible since there really wouldn't be anything to prevent the user from just exiting/retaking the test multiple times ... and not actually submitting the test until all questions were researched. But some preventive measure may be possible to force the user to enter his/her name at the start of the test... and then log that start time on the server... so perhaps in a future release...

With that in mind, as a work-around for now, you may be able to write your own JavaScript to access the test time... and for the user to exit once the maximum allowed test time has been exceeded. See the "getTestTime()" JavaScript function in the uTest Programmer's guide for more information about that:
