How do I add extra time to a quiz?

You can grant access to an individual student, several students, or the entire class to have extra attempts on a quiz. If you have set a time limit on your quiz, you can also grant access for extra time.

1. Click Quizzes on the course navigation menu

2. Click on the name of the quiz you want to change

3. Click Moderate This Quiz in the sidebar on the right

4. The Moderate Quiz page displays the following information:

  • Student name
  • Number of times the student has already attempted to take this quiz
  • Time it took for the student to complete the quiz; the running time will display for students who are currently taking the quiz (counting down for timed quizzes and counting up for non-timed quizzes)
  • Number of remaining attempts, if any
  • Student's quiz score
