Providing Special Access to a Quiz

There may be a situation where you want to grant an individual student Special Access to a quiz. This could include: alternate dates, extended time limit, or increasing the number of attempts that student is allowed. You will locate the Special Access tool in the Availability Dates and Conditions Widget of a quiz.

If a student has an Accommodation through Vanderbilt’s Student Access Center that allows extra time on all quizzes, you can do that with the Accommodations tool.
