How do I moderate a New Quizzes quiz (extra time, assign different dates, a second attempt, etc.)?

You will learn how to make accommodations for your students, such as providing extra time, assigning different due dates, and offering a second attempt.

This guide is for New Quizzes only.

Follow these steps after you have already made your New Quizzes quiz and have students in your course (meaning you can't do this in a course with no students).

I want to Give additional time.

1. Select Give additional time.

Give additional time is selected

2. Type the desired amount of extra time for each upcoming quiz activity.

Note that this setting affects ALL future quizzes, so you only need to do this action one time for each student.

If your Available from time and your Until time are very close, like is sometimes done in Zoom-based synchronous courses, you will likely need to adjust the Assign settings for this Assignment.

I want give one student different dates.

Follow these steps if you need to give one student, a section of students, or a group of students, a different Due date or Until date.

For some synchronous courses held via Zoom, it is quite common that the Available from date and time and the Until date and time are very close together not leaving enough time for an accommodation of extra time.

Note: the only way to give an entire group of students different dates is to create additional sections for your course.

If you have a very small time slot for students to take a quiz/exam, and you have a student needing extra time, you will need to follow these steps in order to change the Due date and the Until date.

5. Select the desired section or individual.

For Assignments that use an LTI, such as for New Quizzes, you cannot use "groups". If you want to assign this to a group of students, you will need to create additional course sections and use them as groups. The sample below shows two extra sections called Section 01 and Section 02.

6. Enter the dates and times to allow for the student's accommodation.

In this sample, the student receives 1.5 multiplier for quizzes and exams, so the Due date/time and the Available date/time have been delayed by 30 minutes.
