Adjust Access for all Quizzes for an Individual

eLC allows instructors to provide individual students accommodations across all quizzes in the course through accommodations settings within the classlist. 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 Claslist 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 on the context menu of the learner to whom you want to grant a quiz accommodation, and then click Edit Accommodations.
