- The number of Attempts set in a User Override must include any previously completed attempts, if any.
Example: If the assignment settings allow for 1 attempt, and you want to allow a student who has already completed an attempt to reenter the assignment, the override must be set to 2 attempts.
- Override Times are in 24hr/military time.
A User Override provides the ability to override certain assignment settings for a particular student without affecting the rest of the class.
- Example: A student requires testing accommodations, such as time and a half. If an exam has a Time Limit of 1 hour, you can set an override to allow the student 1 1/2 hours, or adjust the closing date/time as applicable.
- Example: A student will be missing class and you want to allow another day for the student to turn in the assignment. Set a User Override to extend the due date for the student.
