How do I moderate a student's assessment attempt in New Quizzes?

How do I moderate a student's assessment attempt in New Quizzes?

You can moderate assessment settings for individual students in New Quizzes. Moderation settings apply only to the assessment you are moderating and include reopening assessment attempts and managing timer settings.

Reopening a student's assessment will reopen a student's most recent attempt. Previously recorded responses will be retained and the assessment timer will resume from its remaining time from the previous submission.

Moderation timer settings apply to all attempts for the assessment in which they were set. You can add a specific amount of minutes or hours to each attempt, or remove time limit requirements. Only one timer setting can be selected for each student. To adjust timer settings for all assessments in the course for a student, you can add accommodations.

If timer settings are set at both the course level and the assessment level, course-level settings are applied first. Assessment-level settings cannot be reduced by course-level settings.

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.

Comments

If a student has completed their only attempt on a timed new quiz and the time has run out (0 min 0 sec left), are you able to reopen the attempt AND add additional time? Or do you have to give them a second attempt?  If you give them a second attempt, don't they basically get a blank test with the original time limit?

Feature I'd like to see: Being able to open their one and only attempt and add more time after they have run out.

Looks like this wouldn't quite work how you are hoping and that it just reopens to where the student was when the quiz submitted.

Please feel free to share your idea in the Idea Conversations space.

I attempted to extend a students time while they were taking a quiz today.  On Moderate it showed that they would get 10 more minutes, but on their end they were never given the extra time and were kicked off of the quiz when the original time period had ended.  I reopened the quiz for them, but when they opened back up on their end, it said their time was expired.  We were still within the due date of the quiz.  I have also tried to do the same thing in student view, logged in as the test student, with no success.  Am I missing something?  Are there other settings that I need to fix before I add extra time?

@Steve314,

When you added the extra 10 minutes, was the student already taking the quiz? Or was the time added before. I believe that adding extra time only applies to future attempts and not something that is in progress.

HI @Steve314

It's only been a short time since Cody replied to your comment, but I wanted to follow up and see whether you had any additional questions for us. Feel free to reach out. 

Thanks, 

Allie 

Thanks for the quick response Allie and Cody

 

The student had already started the quiz when I tried adding time.  Is there a way that I can add time after a student has already started a quiz? Or at least can I suggest that this functionality eventually be added to Canvas Quizzes?

@Steve314,

Thank you for your comment. I found an idea conversation you can rate using the stars and add your suggestions/comments: New Quiz Feature: Extra Time while Quiz in Progress. Our product team always welcomes ideas to learn how to improve our product. Thank you!
