Special access can be given to one or more students for a quiz, e.g. a longer time limit or a unique start and/or end date. Special access can also allow students to bypass Lockdown Browser. Instructors can provide Special Access in two ways. From the Classlist, instructors can
set term-long Special Access accommodations for students. In situations of unrepeated accommodations, instructors can set
individual quizzes to have Special Access as well.
When students have accommodations that will span for the entire term, instructors can set it so each student has Special Access for quizzes throughout the quarter using the Classlist.
Note: The accommodations will automatically occur for the student for every quiz. The quiz itself will not show a key icon to indicate that there is Special Access set on the quiz. However, the accommodations can be viewed within the quiz when following the directions to
Add Special Access to an Individual Quiz.
For instances in which accommodations must be made only once, Special Access can be granted within the quiz restrictions.
After the student has taken the quiz, make sure the quiz attempt is graded. Visit
Grading Quizzes for more information.
