Timed assignments

The only way to give different students different amounts of time on timed assignment is to create two assignments and set a different time limit for each one.

  1. Create a copy of the timed assignment.
  2. In the new assignment, create a new grading policy with a longer duration in the Timed section.
  3. Set the available date and due date as needed for both assignments.
  4. For students who need extra time, offset their available date on the original assignment to prevent them from completing it. We recommend choosing a date that is after the end of the term.
  5. For students who do not need extra time, offset their available date on the duplicate assignment to prevent them from completing it. We recommend choosing a date that is after the end of the term.
  6. Make both assignments visible. The original assignment will be available to all students except the ones needing extra time. The duplicate assignment will be available only to the students needing extra time.


Note: All students will be able to see both assignments, but they can only complete one of them.


Regular (non-timed) assignments

For regular (non-timed) assignments, it's easy to accommodate students with special needs using recurring extensions.
