Setting Test Availability Exceptions

In deploying tests, faculty can select one or more groups or users and make a number of exceptions to the test’s availability settings. Some faculty use exceptions to provide accommodations to disabled students or to provide accommodations for technology and language differences.

To make exceptions, first create the group using Control Panel>Users and Groups>Groups.

1. Make sure the Edit Mode is ON.
