I know that Microsoft Word 2010 has a document inspector feature that allows you to find and remove some header information from Word documents.  My question is -- If someone sends me an exam via a Word Document -- is it possible for the sender to know how much time I took on the exam once I send it back?

Thanks,

There is a property labelled 'Total editing time' that can be set to zero by the 'Inspect Document process. It only measures the time that the document is open, so it isn't an accurate reflection of the time that you spend actually working on it.

You can see the "Total Editing Time" recorded in File > Info, Properties. It isn't a good indicator of how long you actually edited though because it is accumulating while the document is open whether or not you are doing anything. Moreover, if you save the file with a new name, it resets to zero. Note that if you do that though, the Last Modified and Created date & time will change to reflect the newly-saved document.
