Timed Notebooks for Student Take-home examinations

I wonder if anyone has implemented this, if not I will give it a 
try.

I'd like to create a template and package for student take home 
exams.

The student would need to finish the notebook in a fixed amount of 
time.  The instructor, who has encoded the package, would be able to 
determine how much time the student has used to finish the exam by 
decoding a string that is written just before the notebook exits.

It would need to be moderately safe from cheating.

Advice would be most welcome.
