Adding extra time with user or group overrides
Access to the override pages
If necessary, it is possible to grant exemptions to specific students or groups of students (e.g. students with extra time).
To do this, go to the "Test" page of the exam.
Then, in the settings (symbolized by a cog), go to the "User overrides" or "Group overrides" page (only works if groups of students have been defined in the MoodleExam space, used for "Special needs" students for example).
Then you have to click on the button "Add a user override".
Add a user override
In the page that appears, you must first enter the name of the student (the one to whom an exemption is granted). To do this, in the "Search" box, enter the first few letters of the student's name, then select him or her from the list that appears.
Then modify the following parameters in accordance with the override granted.
In general, we will modify the "Close the quiz" parameter by adding a few minutes. You have to activate the parameter with the checkbox "Enable" on the right of the parameter, then manually calculate the official end time of the test + the few extra minutes (for example, 5 min of exemption for a test ending at 12:05, gives a test closing time at 12:10), and finally, modify the time of "close the test".
In exceptional situations (e.g., a test that is set up incorrectly and closes prematurely) where the participant can no longer access the test, it may be necessary to change the number of attempts allowed. In this case, add a 2nd attempt.
