There are two ways to extend/allocate time on a quiz. Both may refer to a time frame but those time frames are very different. One you are extending a date time frame, while the other you are extending the minute time frame. One you know which you need to do, or both, look at the instructions below.

If a student needs to take the quiz on a different date, but with still the same time as everyone else. Below will step you through how to do this.

This setup can be done while creating the quiz or after. Do NOT make changes once the quiz has been taken by students.

  • Locate the quiz you want to add a date extension too.
  • Click the three dots in its row.
  • Click Edit
