Once I publish my Quiz, how can I give my students extra time or extra attempts?
You can grant access to an individual student, several students, or the entire class to have extra attempts on a quiz. If you have set a time limit on your quiz, you can also grant access for extra time.
You can add extra attempts and time through moderating the quiz or accessing student quiz results.
Locate Quiz Link
Click the name of the quiz you want to moderate.
Add Extra Attempt through Moderate This Quiz
Click the Moderate This Quiz link.
View Moderate Quiz Options
The Moderate Quiz page displays the following information:
- Student name
- Number of times the student has already attempted to take this quiz
- Time it took for the student to complete the quiz; the running time will display for students who are currently taking the quiz (counting down for timed quizzes and counting up for non-timed quizzes)
- Number of remaining attempts, if any

Give Student Extension
Type the number of extra attempts you'd like to give to the student in the Extra Attempts field .
If the quiz has a time limit and you want to give more time, type the number of extra minutes in the Extra Time on Every Attempt field . If the student hasn't taken the quiz, the extra time will be added to the student's initial attempt and additional attempts.
If the quiz is saved with the Only Once After Each Attempt option, you can let the student see the quiz results one more time . Results include both their responses and the correct answers. Once the student has viewed the quiz results, the results view extension will be reset and the results will be hidden again.
Note: If a student has been granted an extra attempt on a quiz, the student will be able to see the results of their quiz one more time as part of taking the quiz. If this option is selected and students have also been granted an extra attempt on the quiz, students will be able to view the results before they take the quiz, as well as after they complete the quiz. If students are allowed multiple attempts on a quiz, instructors may want to edit the quiz and select the Allow Multiple Attempts option, which gives an option to let students see their quiz responses only after the last attempt.
If your quiz is locked, you will need to unlock the quiz for the student by clicking the manually unlock the quiz for the next attempt checkbox .

Add Extra Time on Current Attempt for Timed Quizzes
If the student is currently taking a timed quiz, the remaining time will display next to a clock icon.
To extend the time on the quiz, click the clock icon.
Extend Quiz Time
1- Extend Quiz from Now
If you want to end the quiz in relation to the current time, select the Now option in the drop-down menu.
As an example, a student is taking a 20 minute quiz that he or she started at 11:30 am, and the quiz is set to end at 11:50 am . You moderated this quiz at 11:40, meaning that 10 minutes have gone by. However, you want to have the quiz end at 11:45. Since the current time is 11:40, you need to give the students only 5 minutes. Enter 5 minutes into the End the quiz _____ minutes from field , and select the now option in the drop-down menu .
Click the Extend Time button.
Confirm Changed Time
Changing the time in relation to the Now option might mean that the student will have less time than was originally on the clock. In our example, the student still had 10 minutes remaining when the instructor moderated the quiz. Changing the time to 5 minutes means the student has 5 fewer minutes to take the quiz.
If you want to change this option, click the Cancel button. Otherwise, click the OK button.

2 - Extend Quiz from Current End Time
If you want to end the quiz in relation to the current end time of the quiz, select the current end time option in the drop-down menu.
As an example, a student is taking a 20 minute quiz that he or she started at 11:30 am, and the quiz is set to end at 11:50 am . You moderated this quiz at 11:30, meaning it was nearly the same time that the student started the quiz, and you want to extend the quiz to end at noon.
If the current end time is 11:50 am and you want to extend it by 10 minutes, enter the number 10 into the End the quiz _____ minutes from field . Then select the current end time option in the drop-down menu .
Click the Extend Time button.
