Give specific students different time or date settings for an assessment (i.e. test or quiz)

From EdTech Help

Some students in your class may need different assessment settings from others. For example, a student could require extra time on a timed assessment, or multiple rosters or sections in the same course site could be administered the same assessment on different dates. The Exceptions to Time Limit and Delivery Date settings allow instructors to create exceptions for specific students, without having to create separate copies of the assessment.

In the assessment Settings page, click Exceptions to Time Limit and Delivery Date

The Exceptions to Time Limit and Delivery Date section will expand to show the following options:

Note. When a student falls within multiple exceptions the last exemption listed that the student appears in will be applied. It is good practice to add exceptions for groups first (if applicable) then exceptions for users.

Select the user from the drop-down list of enrolled students

Note: You must have existing groups in your site in order to select a group and privacy related to these exceptions cannot be maintained if the Roster tool is enabled.

Availability Dates Exception

The availability dates let you specify when your assessment can be accessed by the selected student or group. If you don't specify any dates, the default dates will be the same as the existing assessment settings for all students. This setting will override the normal availability dates for the assessment for the selected student/group.

If you are only changing the amount of time allowed for the test, and not the test availability window, you may leave the dates unchanged.

Use the date-picker (calendar icon) to select a new date and time if desired.

  1. The available date is the start date of the exam window. Students will not be able to see the assessment before this date. Publishing an assessment with a blank available date will make it available immediately upon publishing.
  2. The due date is the end date for the exam window. Students will not be able to submit after this date unless you accept late submissions. If late submissions are allowed, any submissions after the due date will be marked as late.
  3. The Late submissions accepted until? date is the end date for late submissions on the assessment. If late submissions are not accepted, this date should be the same as the due date above.

Note: When you click on any date field, the date-picker (calendar window) will display. You can choose a date by clicking on it in the calendar, or by clicking Now. Select a time using the Hour and Minute sliders. When your date is selected, click Done.

Time limit exception

Select the desired time limit from the drop-down menu. This setting will override the normal time limit setting for the assessment for the selected student/group. If you don't specify a time limit (i.e. time limit of 0), the student will have unlimited time.

Click Add Exception

Existing exceptions will display

Important note: if a student or group falls within multiple exceptions, the last listed exception will be applied. In the case of a student or group that is being accommodated with additional time with an assessment, ensure that the exception specific to the extension appears last, or lowest, within the list.
