This feature enables instructors to grant learners accommodations through the Classlist tool.

In this use case, the instructor is able to apply extended time and adjust right-click capabilities on all quizzes specific to a learner.

Access the functionality from the Classlist by selecting the action caret to the right of a user name and selecting the "Edit Accommodations" link from the contextual menu.

Quiz Accommodations allow managing users (typically instructors) to assign more time to complete quizzes at the course level and the ability to bypass right-click restrictions in quizzes. The right-click restriction in quizzes is the ability for learners to right-click in the quiz while taking the quiz.

Once granted, these accommodations apply to all quiz activities in a course for that learner.

The additional time can be applied in terms of quiz time multipliers (for example, 1.5x quiz time) or +minutes (for example, an additional 30 minutes) on every quiz in a course.

Quiz-specific special access can overwrite an accommodation for any user on a quiz-by-quiz basis. When you overwrite an accommodation and then click Save, a warning describing the impact of overwriting an accommodation appears.
