Canvas - Extending or Adjusting Quiz and Assignment Dates for a Student

The article explains why someone might need to extend or adjust the times on a quiz. The article also provides links to resources on how to make these adjustments for different types of quizzes and assignments in Canvas.

Why would I extend and/or adjust the times in a quiz?  

There are several reasons why someone would want to change the times on their quiz.

  1. Make an accommodation for a student by extending the time they must take the quiz.
    • This accommodation is outlined in Faculty Notification Letter at the beginning of each semester and can be viewed at any time in PROFconnect.
  2. Provide grace to a student experiencing an emergency or technical issue that is preventing them from taking the quiz on the intended day or for the intended time.
  3. Quiz times may need to be adjusted for students who have been granted Extend Access to the course.
    • When a student is allowed access to a course in Canvas past the course end date, the individual assignments and quizzes still need the times changed for students to complete them.
