Brightspace Accommodations for a Learner

This article walks you through the process of adding timing accommodations, in Brightspace, for a learner in your course. Different than we had with Canvas, accommodations added by following these steps apply to all future quizzes/tests within the course.

If you need to provide a learner with access to a quiz/test on a different day/time than the rest of the class, please refer to this Brightspace article on managing special access.


  1. Navigate to the course in question and select Roster from the blue navigation bar at the top of the page.

  2. Click on the context menu (the downward facing arrow) of the learner to whom you want to grant a quiz accommodation, and then click Edit Accommodations.

  3. To grant a learner additional time on a quiz/test, under QuizzesTiming, select the Modify Time Limit check box and then grant the time either in terms of quiz time multipliers or minutes:

    1. To grant the additional time in terms of quiz time multipliers, select the Multiplier of original quiz time radio button and specify the number of times. For example, 1.5 times more than the original time on the quiz.

    2. To grant the additional time in terms of minutes, select the Extra time radio button and specify the number of extra minutes.

  4. Click Save.
