Group Override for Quizzes

Why Use This?

The Group Override setting provides instructors the ability to allow for student accommodations and increased time allotments for a number of users within their Moodle course at one time. It can also be used to give exams at different times for multiple sections in a combined course. Before adding a Group Override, instructors must first create a Group for the students who require the same accommodations.

Creating Groups

If only one student requires an accommodation, or if you have students who require different accommodations, instructors should use the Quiz User Override settings.
