Accommodations for Extra Time on Timed Tests

Setting the Test Options in Blackboard, for individual accommodations:

  1. At the link used by students to take the test, click the down arrow and select Edit the Test Options.

  2. Scroll to the section labeled "TEST AVAILABILITY EXCEPTIONS," which is just below all of the "Availability" options.

  3. Click "Add User or Group." You will get a new window displaying a list of all of the students in the class.

  4. Check the box for the appropriate student(s), and click Submit.

  5. On the Test Options page, the selected student(s) will be listed. You have options to control the number of attempts, how much time is allowed, whether auto-submit is in effect, and the dates for availability (for each individual).

  6. Be sure to click Submit to get the changes recorded.

  7. (You can see exactly how these controls work for yourself, by setting "exceptions" for your own pretend student account.)
