Test Availability Exceptions

New settings—called Test Availability Exceptions—have been added to the Test/Survey Options page, available only after the test or survey is added to a content area. The new settings allow instructors to select one or more groups of students and make a number of exceptions to the already established availability settings. Instructors can use exceptions to provide an accommodation to a disabled student, or provide accommodations for technology and language differences.

You can change these settings at any time, even after the test has been attempted by some students. If conflicts in rules occur, the most permissive settings for that user or group of users is granted. For example, students would receive the greatest number of attempts, longest availability time, and so on.

You can create exceptions for:

  • Number of attempts.
  • Time of test.
  • Auto submit on or off.
  • Availability of test using start and end dates.
  • Force completion on or off.
