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.
