Extended time on assessments is an academic accommodation that instructors may need to make for students taking quizzes and exams in ELMS-Canvas. There are two steps necessary for extending time on quizzes and exams for specific students in a course. The process outlined in this article is also demonstrated in the short video, How to Extend Time on ELMS-Canvas Quizzes and Exams.
NOTE: You cannot change ELMS quiz moderation to give students extensions once a quiz/exam has begun. It must be done beforehand.
By default, ELMS-Canvas will set your quiz for Everyone in your course. When creating or editing a quiz, you can add a due date and availability for a specific student(s). Availability date functionality is still available for each quiz. Only the student(s) specified in the quiz details can view the quiz.
Using Quiz Moderation to give extended time for specific students will only work if there is not an availability restriction on the quiz that does not allow for the extended time. For example, if the quiz is only available from 10-11 a.m., it will close at 11 a.m. for everyone, even students who should have received extended time beyond 11 a.m. It is essential that instructors complete both of the steps in this article to provide extended time on quizzes and exams.
NOTE: Quiz availability settings supersede any time extensions made for specific students using this method.
Quizzes must be published in order for this feature to be available to modify its settings.
