Accomodation for Quizzes with time limit

Jump to solution

How do I give one student an extended time limit on an online quiz on Canvas (due to special needs accommodation).  For example, I have weekly quizzes set for 60 minute time limits, but I have a student who has an accommodation need for double time. How do I make this accommodation for one student only?

Thank you.

Hi Heather

The "Moderate" option in a quiz lets you give extra time or extra attempts to specific students:

Once I publish my quiz, how do I use the Moderate Quiz page?

 @simph ​, here's the guide that would explain how to allow only specific students (or a single student) extra time on a quiz - Once I publish a timed quiz, how can I give my students extra time?

Hope this helps!

Is it possible to make this extension for a single student for all quizzes at once, instead of quiz by quiz?

Currently, no,  @rfd131 , but it looks like that functionality is on the horizon-- --and it might be part of the massive quiz refactor project Canvas Studio: Modern Quizzing Engine.

I would definitely like this function as well.

How would a student know you gave them extra time on a quiz? It seems they would only know that if they knew how much time other students were given and I can't see that in student view. I would not expect instructors to email them with this information (not a good solution). Thanks. Kathleen

They wouldn't.

When they access the quiz, their time limit will include the extra time added on.  So if the quiz has a 30 minute time limit and you give them 15 minutes extra time, it will show the student a time limit of 45 minutes. 

You can test this using the Test Student. 

Did you want them to know?  If so, you would have to communicate that to them.
