How do I add a user override for a Quiz?
You will learn how to add a user override for a quiz in your course. A user override is the best way to accommodate a student with different needs, such as (1) a different password, (2) different open and close dates, (3) a different time limit, and/or (4) a different number of attempts.
Follow these steps after you have already created a quiz.
1. Enter your course in TITANium.
2. Click on the link to your quiz.
3. Click on the Gear icon within the Quiz page.
4. Click on User overrides.
Tip: User overrides can be set for each student. Group overrides are for groups of students. To use the Group override, you must first create a group and place one or more students in it.
5. Click on Add user override.
6. Select a student from the list by clicking on it.
7. Change one or more of the conditions.
The conditions which can be changed for an individual student are as follows:
Require password: You can set a password or a new password for this student.
Open the quiz: You can set an open date or have none at all.
Close the quiz: You can set a close date if desired.
Time limit: You can have a different time limit (or none at all). This is the most commonly used accommodation for students via Disabled Support Services.
Attempts allowed: Select 1-10 or unlimited.
Sometimes a user override is created after a student has already made one attempt and had some kind of issue with taking the Quiz. If this is the case for you, then you need to add an additional attempt. For example, change the number from "1" to "2".
8. Click on Save.
9. The user override displays.
"*Student does not have the correct group or role to attempt the quiz."
This message means that some other condition will prevent the student from currently taking the quiz. Most commonly, the Quiz or the Topic section the Quiz is in is either hidden from students or a Restrict access is set, such as a Date or an Activity completion restriction.
1. Click on the Quiz link.
2. Click on the Gear icon within the Quiz.
3. Click on Edit settings.
4. Scroll down to the Restrict access section.
Is there a restriction on this quiz? It may actually be in conflict with the quiz open and close dates or it may restrict access by group, by date, by user, by activity completion, etc.
4.1. Adjust your Restrict access settings if desired.
This sample Quiz shows a date restriction is in place on the Quiz. You can adjust the date, remove the date restriction or verify that it is correct.
Note: If the Restrict access setting is correct, then you don't need to adjust it or remove it. Just know that the message on the user override will remain posted until the restriction requirement is met.
4.2. Or remove the Restrict access as shown here.
Why do you need a Restrict access setting if you already have an opening and closing date set for the Quiz? You may still want to have some other type of restriction, such as activity completion, group membership, etc.
4.3. Click on Save and display after adjusting the restrict access settings.
4.4. The message now no longer displays.
You have now learned how to add a user override for a quiz, so that a student in your course may have different quizzing conditions, such as extra time, different dates or a different password.
