Extended Time in Canvas Quizzes/Exams

If you have a student with an accommodation for extended time on exams, you’ll need to set that up in Canvas BEFORE the exam begins. This will likely be a two step process depending on your exam settings.

  1. Set a different (e.g. wider) availability window for the student(s) (Canvas tutorial)
  2. Extend the time limit for the student(s)
    1. Classic Quizzes Tutorial
    2. New Quizzes Tutorial
