Allow Additional Time for One or More Students

Why Do This

You may need to give a student with a disability extra time to complete a quiz. Or you might need to change the quiz open/close times for a student who has a legitimate reason for missing a quiz, or provide an additional attempt for a student who experienced a technical issue that  and wasn't able to complete the quiz . You can also set different quiz open/close times for groups if you have a combined container and you want the students from different sections to take the quiz in class.  In that case the students would first need to be added to  groups according to their section.
