How do I add accommodations for a student in New Quizzes?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I add accommodations for a student in New Quizzes?

You can add accommodations for a student in New Quizzes. Accommodation settings include adding or removing time for all quiz attempts, and multiplying time limits by a set multiplier.

Accommodations apply to all quizzes in a course for a student and only one accommodation can be set per student. Set accommodations can be viewed in the Accommodations column and in the Moderate panel.  

To manage timer settings for a single attempt, you can moderate a student's quiz attempt. Moderating a quiz attempt will apply any moderation settings on top of any set accommodations.

Note: Quiz availability dates still apply when moderating a quiz. If the Until date passes before a student completes an extra attempt or extended-time quiz, any in-progress quizzes auto-submit and the quiz closes, even if the student's attempt has not expired.
