Duplicate an exam, test or quiz in Moodle to provide extended time for select students or provide a self proctored test

If you have received an accommodation request from a student to provide extended time on assessments or other types of activities, the information below will help.  

For some students, instead of duplicating the exam, you can provide the additional time with an override for the student and then place a time limit on the exam, such providing 50% more  exam time.  However, some students have additional accommodations to consider; therefore, you may need to duplicate the exam to provide additional support.

To duplicate an activity to provide an accommodation for select students:

  • Duplicate the exam in the course. and rename the duplicated exam;
  • Edit the exam settings to match the accommodation needed for an individual student or a group of students;
  • Restrict access  to the duplicated exam to an individual student or a select group of students by adding a password. When you specify a password, students must enter the password before they are allowed to attempt the quiz;
  • Dates, timing and number of allowed attempts may be changed for individual students or groups by following the links  Student Overrides or Group of Student Overrides in quiz administration;
  • If needed, add the accommodation to the Respondus Monitoring and Lockdown Browser dashboard settings or to the SmarterProctoring dashboard settings if you are using exam proctoring. If access is restricted in the Moodle exam with a password, you must use this same password for the student in the Respondus and SmartProctoring set up,
