Assign: Test with Extensions

The test extensions feature allows teachers to grant extensions on the date or time limit of a test to all students or to a subset of students. 

Extensions will overwrite any values defined at the test level for the selected students.

Test extensions can be added to class level tests.  Teachers can add extensions to their classroom tests when assigning to their class. Or, extensions can be added to district or school launched tests that have already been launched. See Schedule: Test by Date for more information.

  1. Select the class to which you want to assign a test.

  2.  Then select Tests & Quizzes on the left sidebar.

  3. Hover over the gear icon to the far right of the test you wish to assign, and select Assign to Class from the drop-down menu. For further assistance in assigning a test, please refer to Assign Tests to Classes. 

    You will not be able to edit your test once assigned.

  4. Select + extensions in the center of the page. 

    If you have neither a due date or a time limit on your test, you will not see the + extensions feature.

  5. If your test has a scheduled time limit, you will see an extension Time limit that will enable you to create a new time limit for the selected students. If you have a due date for your test, you will see an extension Due Date that will allow you to create a new due date for the selected students. 

    You can apply both a Time Limit and a Due Date extension to one student if needed. You can also apply a Time Limit extension to some students and a Due Date extension to others on the same test if needed.

  9. Once your test is assigned, the students who were granted an extension will take the test like any other assigned test. There is no indication that they were granted an extension, however the extension due date or time limit will display in their account while the original due date or time limit will display for other students who were not granted an extension.
