Quiz Extensions

Extend Time on All Quizzes in Webcourses@UCF

These instructions will show you how to extend time for all timed quizzes in Webcourses@UCF. This tool will only apply extra time to existing quizzes only. If another quiz is added, the process must be repeated.

Ensure that your quiz allows enough time for students with quiz extensions to finish their quiz.

Quiz extensions extend the time limit on a quiz. However, quiz extensions do not automatically extend the availability dates of the quiz. Please ensure that the availability dates of the quiz, between the “available from” date and the “until date,” allow sufficient time for students who have been given a quiz extension to make use of their total allotted time.

Follow these instructions on how to assign a quiz to an individual student to give the students with an extension an extended availability window for the quiz.

If You Use Honorlock for Proctored Exams

*Please note: if you use the Quiz Extensions tool to give a student extra time, please do this BEFORE enabling Honorlock. If Honorlock is already enabled and you need to add a Quiz Extension, please Disable and then re-Enable Honorlock to ensure those students have the time they need.
