How to Set Test Availability Exceptions
In deploying a test, faculty can make exceptions to the availability settings for one or more users or groups. This feature can be used to address:
- approved accommodations such as extended time
- students who may need to take an exam at an alternate date and time from the rest of the class
- students who may need to re-take an exam due to technical issues
