Enhancements

Accommodations – Improvements in Classlist & Quizzes

Improvements in Classlist for Instructors:

  • An icon now appears next to the student's name in the Classlist to indicate that the student has an accommodation.
  • Instructors can filter the Classlist by Accommodations.

Improvements in Quizzes for instructors:

  • Instructors can now grant student's special access in terms of quiz time multipliers (for example, 1.5x quiz time) or +minutes (for example, an additional 30 minutes). Refer to the Quizzes  Improvements to Special Access functionality | Updated release note for more information.
  • 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 the accommodation appears. Previously, this warning appeared at the top of the Quiz special access screen. Now, it appears on clicking Save.

Quizzes – Improvements to Special Access functionality

Instructors can now grant students special access in terms of quiz time multipliers (for example, 1.5x quiz time) or +minutes (for example, an additional 30 minutes). For example, if an instructor has a 30-minute quiz and using the Special Access page, grants three students 1.5x the quiz time, their updated quiz time of 45 minutes displays. Instructors no longer have to manually calculate the updated quiz time.
