Special Accommodations in Canvas

Did you know you can give a student special access to an assignment in Canvas?

Canvas makes it easy to add more time or change dates for just one student on an assignment. There are many potential reasons to do this, and Canvas provides the tools!

SPECIAL ACCESS IN CANVAS ALLOWS YOU TO:

Give a student extra time to complete a paper

Open an assignment for just one student

Provide additional time for a Canvas quiz

Allow extra time to complete a discussion


 

NOTE: After clicking  the “+Add” button to add additional dates/times for a student, click in the new “Assign to” box and start typing their name. It may not automatically appear in the dropdown list.

NOTE: Please make sure that your quiz availability window is long enough to accommodate the extra time given to a student.

EXAMPLE: You are giving a 60 minute exam that it is set to be open from 1:00 to 2:00. If one of your students needs an additional 30 minutes for an accommodation you will need to (1) Add 30 minutes of extra time in the "Moderate Quiz" tool, AND (2) Assign the student a special Available from and Until Time of 1:00 to 2:30 in the main quiz settings.
