How to correctly set Exam timings for students that need extra time

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am building a 4 hour exam for an academic and I am a little confused in where I edit the extra time a student receives for having a Learning Support Agreement.

I have set the time of the exam here:

Some students have been given an extra 25% so my thought is that I just need to add the extra time in the Quiz moderation page for ‘ +1 hour ’ and that this will then be added on top of the official exam time of 4 hours.

A colleague has told me that doing this is incorrect as if I leave the exam set at 4 hours, then this will be the same cut off for every student. Do I need to add the extra hour to the main time settings?

I am unable to find anything on this on the support pages and would appreciate some clear guidance on what I am supposed to do to avoid incorrect timings for students.

Many thanks

Rick

Hi @Redblade017 

You are correct! You use the Moderate Quiz page to add extra time for some students. Tell your colleague that yes it does work that way, and I have been doing it since 2012! And, yes it is in the guides! Depending on which quiz tool you are using.............

It's good to be right once in a while!

Hi Kelley,

Thank you for the reply and I will pass this on to my colleague.

I had a separate response from another Canvas forum that suggested that I could include the extra timings for students that needed more time in the 'assign to' area at the start of the exam, as I had been using the assign to 'everyone' option.

Kind regards

Hi again, @Redblade017 

You can use that method to extend availability dates and due dates, but you cannot use that method to extend the allotted testing time.

Hi Kelley,

Thank you for the second response. I have a better idea on this now and will build a couple of examples in my sand box to test and adjust.

Best wishes
