  • In the Timing area, set your timing options for the quiz:
    • Recommended Time Limit suggests to learners how long the quiz should take to complete. Learners can take more or less time than the recommended time without any penalty.
    • Enforced Time Limit sets a defined amount of time learners have to complete the quiz. Add a grace period to allow extra time to complete the quiz once the time limit is exceeded. Once the time limit and grace period is exceeded, choose from the following behaviors:
      • Allow the student to continue working to allow the learner to continue working on the quiz without any penalty.

      • Prevent the student from making further changes to not allow the quiz to save any additional questions.

      • Allow the student to continue working, but automatically score the attempt as zero after an extended deadline to allow the learner to continue to work on the quiz, but the entire quiz score will be marked as zero.

  • In the Special Access area, select your Type of Access and click Add Users to Special Access.
