Special Access is a feature of Quizzes and Assignments that allows for student submissions or access to these tools occur at different times than the Start Date and End Date allow. This feature allows for a flexibility that also reduces the need for duplicate quizzes or assignment folders to be created.
Special Access is used in some common scenarios:
- To enhance access for those student who have accommodations
- To allow for multiple groups of people to access the same assignment folder at different start and end times
- To allow for different groups of people to access the same quiz and have different parameters for completing the quiz
- To allow for students who are taking an online quiz but get disconnected, they can have a second attempt or have their time extended
