Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Quiz User Override Settings

The User Override setting provides instructors with the ability to allow for student accommodations and increased time allotments for specific users in their Moodle course. If instructors need to add the same accommodation to multiple students, they can either do so individually, or use the Quiz Group Override settings.

How to Enable the User Override Setting: 

1. Select the course where your desired quiz is located.

2. Click on the quiz
