Using the Accommodations tool to provide a student extended time on all Quizzes

The Accommodations tool provides the option to modify the time limit for a student for all existing and future quizzes in a course in D2L Brightspace. 

NOTE:  Using the Accommodations tool will apply the accommodation to all quizzes in the course for that student.  If you want to grant special access such as extended time, early or late access, or a different number of attempts on an individual quiz for one or more students, use the Special Access to Quizzes option.
