Important Note: If you choose the "Acts as Extension" option - regardless if you chose "Add additional access" or "Disregard the assignment settings" earlier - the following will occur. Let's first assume your assignment allowed for 10 minutes and the exception added 20 minutes.

    • If the student had not yet started the assignment, they would have a combined total of 30 minutes (10 minutes from the original settings and 20 minutes from the exception).
    • If the student had used all of their time but had not submitted the assignment, they would have only 20 minutes from the exception.
    • If the studentalready submitted the assignment, they would not be allowed to reopen the assignment and use the 20 minutes from the exception, so effectively, they would have 0 minutes.
  1. Optional: Notify students of this exception via email. Students will receive an email with the exception details.
  2. Click the Grant Exception button.
