Stacked Accommodations in Quizzes.Next

Question asked by Kelvin Dean on Jun 14, 2019

According to the release notes, Quizzes.Next will be getting some new accommodation settings.

This change allows instructors to give students extra time or attempts for a specific assessment without applying the accommodation to all assessments in a course.

 

Instructors can provide students with assessment-level accommodations of additional time or attempts. These features operate in addition to the existing course-level accommodation of giving extra time to a student. Assessment-level accommodations cannot reduce the effect of course-level accommodations.

That means Emily will have 3 normal + 2 extra = 5 total attempts.

 

Regarding the time accommodations, will they be stacked? Here are some scenarios.

 

SCENARIO 1 (EXTRA MINUTES)

  • Normal time limit: 60 mins
  • Course-level accommodation: 15 mins
  • Assessment-level accommodation: 30 mins
  • Expected total time: 1 hr + 15 mins + 30 mins = 1h 45m

 

SCENARIO 2 (EXTRA MINUTES AND EXTRA MULTIPLIERS)

  • Normal time limit: 30 mins
  • Course-level accommodation: 1.5x multiplier
  • Assessment-level accommodation: 15 mins
  • Expected total time: 30 mins * 1.5x + 15 mins = 60 mins (as shown below)

SCENARIO 3 (EXTRA MULTIPLIERS)

  • Normal time limit: 1h 15m
  • Course-level accommodation: 1.5x multiplier
  • Assessment-level accommodation: 1.5x multiplier
  • Expected total time: 1h 15m * 1.5x * 1.5x = 2h 48m 45s (as shown below)

Two Multipliers

Students will not see any type of notification about the accommodation. However, if they click the View Your Accommodations button, they can view the effect of the accommodation in their assessment time limit and/or attempt total, as well as other accommodations that the instructors provide.

 

TAKING THE SECONDS INTO CONSIDERATION

I have another question regarding Scenario 3. When a student gets ready for a Quizzes.Next test, they see the time limit with the seconds, as shown below. Will the seconds be taken into consideration with the two multipliers (2h 48m 45s), or will the time limit be rounded up to the nearest minute (2h 49m)?

I hope to see a new feature for setting the time limit with the seconds without using any multipliers.
