How to Provide Special Access to a Quiz
There may be a situation where you want to grant a student Special Access to a quiz. This could include: Alternate dates, extended time limit, or increasing the number of attempts a student is allowed. You will locate the Special Access tool in the Restrictions tab of Quizzes. You can read about the Restrictions tab here.
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.
