How do I moderate a student's quiz attempt in New Quizzes?

You can moderate quiz settings for individual students in New Quizzes. Moderation settings apply only to the quiz you are moderating and include reopening quiz attempts and managing timer settings.

Reopening a student's quiz reopens a student's most recent attempt. Previously recorded responses are retained and the quiz timer resumes from its remaining time from the previous submission.

Moderation timer settings apply to all attempts for the quiz in which they were set. You can add a specific amount of minutes or hours to each attempt, or remove time limit requirements. Only one timer setting can be selected for each student. To adjust timer settings for all quizzes in the course for a student, you can add accommodations. Moderation timer settings will not be applied to a quiz attempt that is currently in progress.

If timer settings are set at both the course level and the quiz level, course-level settings are applied first. Quiz-level settings cannot be reduced by course-level settings.

Note: Quiz availability dates still apply when moderating a quiz. If the Until date passes before a student completes an extra attempt or extended-time quiz, any in-progress quizzes auto-submit and the quiz closes, even if the student's attempt has not expired.
