Allow different time limit to schedule a quiz

Jump to solution

Currently, Canvas allows to assign two different time periods to schedule a quiz for two different students. However, it does not allow to assign two time limits for two different students. In such a case, we need to create two separate quizzes with two different time limits. This is a very inconvenience situation and also makes very difficult to track the grades. Assume that we have students in one class that need 50% or 100% extra time as their accommodation. For each quiz, three quizzes should be created, and in the grade area, three columns show one quiz. 
Also, Canvas allows to assign different points for different questions in one quiz, but it does not allow time limit for each question. So, if we would like to have 10 questions that each question needs different time limit, we need to create 10 separate quizzes. I am sorry, but this shows Canvas as a disable software.

Hi @DariushKhezrimo 

Using the Moderate Quiz feature, you can easily set different time limits for every student in your class if so desired. See the following guides depending on which quiz engine you are using..........

Enjoy,

I only use Classic Quizzes, and I frequently. have students who require double time. It's important to remember to do two things.

1. Go into Moderation, and give that student extra time.

2. Extend the time period for the quiz to cover the added time.

For example, let's say that the class has 30 minutes starting at 9:00 and ending at 9:30. I would need to give the student with accommodations 1 hour and schedule his/ her quiz to start at 9:00 and end at 10:00.

@DariushKhezrimo 

what @kmeeusen has provided is correct in one sense.  I have had the experience of moderating a quiz to extend the time for students that need it.  However, If the total time that the quiz is available (i.e you set quiz availability from 12:30 to 1:00 with a 30 minute time limit), then even if you moderate the quiz and give a student 30 extra minutes, they will only get the 30 minutes.

The above may be true only if you put an until time on the quiz(which is what I do).  

If you have a way to test out the time limits with actual dummy student accounts, I would recommend making sure that the quiz is available for the amount of time that the extended time students require.

 

Thank you, That is a good suggestion. Unfortunately, I am not able to enable the New Quiz future on Canvas from Setting/Future options. So, at the moment, I cannot experience your suggestion.

@DariushKhezrimo -

The suggestions mentioned work with classic quizzes as well.
