Giving Special Access to a Student on a Quiz or Exam in D2L
First, click on the quizzes tab and select the quiz you are interested in.
This document covers how to give students special access to a quiz or exam. For example sometimes students need extra time, or sometimes they need to have an extended due date.
Then, click on the "restrictions" tab.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and press the "add users to special access" button
Extend the special access you would like to give the student (extra time, different due date, etc.)
NOTE: Settings left unchanged will keep their default values (the settings for the quiz itself). Example: On an exam open from June 01 to June 06 with a time limit of 20 minutes. Instructor Dr. Dre checks the start date box and changes the date to May 25. The selected student(s) [in the next step] will have from May 25 to June 06 but will still have a time limit of 20 minutes.
Scroll down and choose the student who will get the special access. Press the blue "add special access" button.
NOTE: An instructor may create multiple "special access" conditions. You may for example have two students who get time and a half (one special access setup with those two students selected) and one other student who needs an extra two days to take the exam (a separate special access).
Click "save and close"
The key icon next to the exam's name means that you have successfully granted the student special access to the quiz.
NOTE: This icon indicates "at least one" special access setup. If you set up multiple conditions, only one key will be displayed.
