Extending Test Time in FREDLearn

How do I give extended testing time for an individual student, or make other date and time changes?

Add Semester-Long Special Access

If a student has extended testing time for all testing this can be added to the course once and will impact all quizzes in the course with a time limit.

  1. Log into the course
  2. In the top blue toolbar choose Course Tools
  3. From the Course Tools menu choose roster
  4. In the roster, click the drop-down menu next to the student's name that receives extended testing time
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the options and choose Edit Accommodations
  6. Check the box for Modify Time limit
  7. Choose to either multiply the original quiz time
    1. This should be used when students are given time-and-a-half (1.5) or double time (2)
  8. or to include Extra time
    1. This should be used if a student get a set amount of extra time on each quiz, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, etc
  9. Press Save

After this is saved you will see an icon next to the students name indicating special access has been given.

This accommodation will automatically occur for the student for every quiz. The quiz itself will not show a key icon to indicate that there is Special Access set on the quiz.
