  5. Set the Require password, Open the quiz, Close the quiz, Time limit, and Attempts allowed settings for the particular student (view image). Remember: if you are extending the Time limit, be sure to extend the Close the quiz time as well to be sure students don't get cut off. Whichever time limit is reached first determines when their quizzes get automatically submitted. If you are unsure - contact us!
  6. Click in the Search box and start typing in the student's name until you see it appear, then select it. It should replace the No selection text (view image).
  7. If you are only dealing with one student, click on the Save button. Otherwise, click on the Save and enter another override button, and repeat. When you set up the last student, be sure to click on the Save button (view image).
  8. You should now see the results of what you have set up. It's always a good idea to double-check the settings at this point (view image).
