Question: How do I obtain the clock time in MapleTA and/or Maple

I have a mapleTA question that blocks students from starting a mastery assignment until I tell them how to do the problem. But some students are gaming it but finding out the problem from an earlier section. I want to game back by making the answer change depending on the wall clock, that is the section they are in. To do so, I need a clock function to tell the time. Since I can call maple inside mapleTA, a maple solution will also work.
