Assign Accommodations in Canvas Grade book

Assign Accommodations in Canvas Grade book

In the new quizzes platform, teachers can provide accommodations to students and those accommodations are provided on every quiz without the teacher continually having to reassign them. It would be wonderful if this feature could be added to the Canvas grade book. This way a teacher can provide 504's and/or IEP's extended time and they receive this on every assignment which is recorded in the grade book. Even better, if there were a drop down menu and the teacher could select which category the student received the accommodation: on homework, quizzes, tests, projects, etc...

I am definitely in favor of anything that increases the ease of adding accommodations for our students with special needs.

One of our teachers spoke with Canvas Help and they said the only way to provide time or attempt accommodations was through the actual assignment or quiz. We would like to have this capability set by student, so they extra time or attempts would be applied to anything assigned. This would help teachers be compliant with IEPs and 504s without having to do the extra step of moderating it every time something was assigned.

The ability to apply an accommodation of extra time directly to the student, which would apply to all of their tests/quizzes, rather than having to manually adjust each individual quiz, is a fairly large lacking feature

I agree, there should definitely be a way to assign accommodations to student profiles so that the accommodations are automatically applied to each new assignment. Having to go through a list of students in every assignment that isn't sorted in any obvious way (and is not able to be sorted by alpha or section) and then set each accommodation for every single assignment is definitely inefficient for special education teachers. I am also wondering why extra time and extra attempts are the only available accommodations.

We would love a feature that would allow teachers to alter a student's profile that have accommodations. For example, If Ashley has extra time accommodation for assignments and tests. We could select that under her profile and Canvas would know to give that student extra time for all her assignments. Instead of the teacher having to select the accommodation for each individual assignment.
