Allow a Student Special Access to Submit a Quiz

 Allow a Student Special Access to Submit a Quiz

NOTE: As of May 2021 there is a new accommodations feature through Classlist, which allows you to give extra time on all quizzes to individual students in a course. If you set special access for quiz time duration for a student, AND you also have an overall accommodation set for them via this new Classlist feature, the one you have most recently edited will be the one that sticks.

  1. Click the Quizzes tool
  2. From the Quiz List section > Click the Quiz title that the student needs access to
  3. Click the Restrictions tab
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the window to the Special Access section

  6. Click the Add Users to Special Access button

  8. To increase the allotted amount of time on the exam such as double time on the quiz, click the Enforced time limit radio button in the Timing section>Set the new allotted time
