Accommodations

Accommodations

This feature enables instructors to grant learners accommodations through the Classlist tool. Accommodation options currently available include:

  • more time to complete quizzes at the course level
  • ability to bypass right-click restrictions in quizzes.

The right-click restriction in quizzes is the ability for learners to right-click in the quiz while taking the quiz.

Once granted, these accommodations apply to all quiz activities in a course for that learner. The additional time can be applied in terms of quiz time multipliers (for example, 1.5x quiz time) or +minutes (for example, an additional 30 minutes) on every quiz in a course.

NOTE: You can assign 0.5x quiz time, which would half the available quiz time. Be careful to not cut time from someone!

Quiz-specific special access can overwrite an accommodation for any user on a quiz-by-quiz basis. When you overwrite an accommodation and then click Save, a warning describing the impact of overwriting an accommodation appears. Further accommodation options and enhancements are planned for this year.
