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.
To set accommodations at the course level follow these steps:
1. Go to classlist under Communication in the Navbar
2. Find the student and click the downbar next to the student’s name
3. Click edit accommodations
Figure: The new Edit Accommodations dialog box
The right-click restriction in quizzes is the ability for learners to right-click in the quiz while taking the quiz.
4. Set time limit and controls then click Save
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.
