  2. From the menu, selectEdit the Test Options
  3. Under “Test Availability Exceptions”, select the “Add User or Group” button and follow prompts to add the student (or group) for whom the make-up date applies.

  4. Under Attempts, leave the drop down set to “Single Attempt” to give each student one attempt on the test
  5. Under Timer, edit the timer to the correct time the student should have to complete the test (Please check “auto submit” so the exam will submit when the time expires).
  6. Under Availability, enter the new date range for the test to be open.
  7. Select the Submit button to save your changes.
