Adjusting Quiz Deadlines for Individual Students

To adjust quiz deadlines for individual students:

  1. From your course home page, click on the desired quiz.
  2. On your Administration block (typically located on the top left of your screen), click 'User overrides.'
  3. Click 'Add user override.' Please note, when the override screen appears, the 'search' and 'Require password' fields occasionally auto-fill with your username and password. Make sure to delete these entries before proceeding.
  4. In the search box, enter the name of the student whose quiz you wish to open.
  5. Adjust this individual's deadline by modifying the 'Open the quiz' and 'Close the quiz' dates as necessary.
  6. If necessary, adjust the time limit and attempts allowed as needed. (Every student has one attempt to begin with. To allow for a second attempt, you will need to select '2' from the 'Attempts allowed' dropdown menu.)
  7. Once your changes are complete, click 'Save.'

    Please note, if an overridden grade has been entered for this student's quiz, it must be removed before they can reattempt it. Otherwise, the gradebook will continue to display the locked overridden grade.
