Always allow extra time for specific students (IEP, LEP, etc.)

    I know that we can go to a timed quiz and add on more time.


    I would like to allow extra time for specific students not just for certain quizzes, but for ALL timed activities, since this is very often a part of a student's IEP. For example:


    Quiz A: 10 minutes

    Quiz B: 20 minutes

    Quiz C: 15 minutes


    Let's say that my IEP student Vernor Learner generally needs 15 extra minutes. I allow him the 15 minutes for ALL timed tasks, so he now gets 25, 35 and 30 minutes total on quizzes A, B and C, respectively. 


    This just saves me the time of granting extra time for each task and lets me get it all done at the start of the semester.
