Campus level IEP settings for a student that Admins can set

Campus level IEP settings for a student that Admins can set

It would be nice to have at the Admin level that when a student has an IEP for let us say 1.5x or 2x on their exams or assignments that we can go in and put that info in at a student level that automatically carries over to all their classes and automatically sets those times for the student.

This would be SO helpful.  I want to set a late submission policy across my gradebook, but will then have to go in an individually unmark the Late status for any student with extended time.  My other option would be to individually assign each student with extended time, but then I'd have to add 35-40 students separately for every assignment.  Making a separate section for extended time and assigning that would mess up the syncing with Synergy (per Canvas Support).  Either way, so much clicking.

This is a FABULOUS idea even for college level courses where we do our accommodations differently. It adds a level of assurance for the student and Student Accessibility Services that the student is receiving their legal accommodations.

This would be hugely beneficial to our students who have arranged for extra time accommodations, but also to our faculty, who must remember to add time for each student with this need for each assignment/quiz/etc. If this process could be more automated, both students and faculty would benefit greatly!

Agreed! This would be so helpful across many different programs.

If not at admin level... at the least at a course level for a student.  Maybe set under People of a course, but at the top level would go across all courses saving time for all teachers.

This feature would be helpful for my office (Disability Support Services) and for all faculty that provide accommodations. The workload faculty are facing with the new online only shift is high and this would help them not miss an accommodation for students. If not at the admin level, then at least from the faculty level.

This would be extremely beneficial and more equitable to our students who have requested extra time accommodations. Additionally, it also supports faculty as they currently must remember to add time for each student with this need for each assignment/quiz/etc.

A feature that will be extremely beneficial to our students who have arranged for extra time accommodations. This feature is needed either at the admin level or within a course. If this process could be more automated, both students and faculty would benefit.

This would be a game changer for our faculty and students. It has the potential to improve equity and compliance simultaneously. I can see our faculty happily using a feature like this that will benefit our students significantly.

This would be tremendously helpful. As David says, even if it's just something faculty can do for their entire course for a student, it would simplify things immensely. I'm sure an institutional role would be harder (and breaking out the relevant permissions, etc), but also would help with compliance and workload.

This would be a great addition to both student, faculty, and staff. Having a feature like this in Canvas would only help ensure students accommodations are being met.
