Canvas - How do I moderate quizzes or extend deadlines for individual students?

Canvas has easy to use options to add attempts and time to quizzes and extend due dates for individuals.

Moderate Quizzes (extend time, add attempts)

Note: Quiz availability dates still apply when moderating a quiz. If the Until date passes when students are taking the quiz with extended time, the quiz auto-submits even if the student's time extension has not expired. You can fix this by adjusting deadlines on the quiz, instructions below.

Classic Quizzes

After a quiz has been published, the quiz sidebar shows the Moderate Quiz link. This link allows you to individually moderate the quiz for each student in your course. You can give students additional attempts, extra time for timed quizzes, and manually unlock quiz attempts. On this page you can also keep track of  the progress of student submissions and view the number of quiz attempts each has taken. 

New Quizzes

After opening the quiz to the build page, you will see the Moderate option on the top. This link allows you to individually moderate the quiz for each student in your course. You can give students additional attempts, extra time for timed quizzes or remove the time limit, and manually unlock quiz attempts. On this page you can also keep track of  the progress of student submissions and view the number of quiz attempts each has taken. 

Extend deadlines (assignments, quizzes)

If you have a student that needs extended days to complete an assignment or quiz, or if you are planning on making time accommodations that would run into the next day, you need to assign an individual due date to the student.
