Web-based accommodations for students

Posted on October 27th, 2011 by

Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) has many adopters and potential benefits. At Gustavus, one of the most common implementations of JiTT is to administer pre-class quizzes through Moodle. For web-based quizzes to be the most effective, researchers have recommended establishing time limits. However, as an accommodation, students frequently request extra time on assignments, exams, and quizzes. To still have a time limit and accommodate students who request extra time, I have been duplicating quizzes in Moodle and extending the time limit for one of these quizzes. After you have duplicated a quiz, you can make one copy visible only to the group of students who have requested extra time, or you canĀ password protect one copy and only give out the password to students who need it. UNCC has directions for duplicating quizzes and setting up groups and the U of M suggests a few other ways of making exceptions on quizzes.
