Extended Time for Quizzes

Student access to quizzes in eLC can be adjusted to provide individuals with extended or alternative time – either for a specific quiz or for all quizzes in the course.

Setting Up an Extended Time Accommodation

If the View Other Users' Accommodations and the Add/Edit Accommodations permissions are turned on for your role, you can grant learners quiz accommodations from the Classlist tool. Once granted, these accommodations apply to all quiz activities in a course for that learner.

To grant quiz accommodations from the Classlist:

  1. Within your course in eLC, navigate to your Classlist.

  2. Click the dropdown arrow next to the learner to whom you want to grant a quiz accommodation, and then click Edit Accommodations.click on edit accommodations
  3. Select the Modify Time Limit checkbox to enable customization of the time restrictions. Your options include:
    Multiplier of original quiz time Extra time

    • Multiplier of original quiz time - This option allows you to accommodate a student by providing extended time in proportion to the assigned time. It is common for students to have an accommodation allowing 1.5 times the original quiz time.
    • Extra time - This option allows you to set a fixed number of minutes added to all quizes for these students.

  4. You may choose to enable Always Allow Right Click if you wish.
