Detect user resuming partially completed survey

I have a fairly complex survey, and I'd like to show users who are coming back to the survey some time a refresher of the survey instructions. Is there any way to detect that a user is resuming a partially completed survey? Searches of the archives and google have turned up nothing.

    You could save the value of Q_TotalDuration to an embedded data variable (e.g., lastPageTime) after each page. Then compare Q_TotalDuration to lastPageTime and if the difference is more than X display your refresher instructions.

    You would put a descriptive text question at the the top of each page with your instructions and use JavaScript to either hide it or show it depending on the difference in time.
