Setting Extra Time for Individual Students

To set extra time for individual students:

  1. From your course home page, click on the desired quiz.
  2. On your Administration block, click to expand 'Quiz administration,' and select '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. Check the 'Enable' box next to 'Time limit.'
  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. If you want to set a deadline, check 'Enable' and adjust the open and close dates as necessary.
  8. Once your changes are complete, click 'Save.'
