Extending Availability dates for only one or a few students: Find the assessment you would like to make modifications to and open Test Options.
Scroll down to "Test Availability Exceptions" and choose "Add User or Group" which will open a new window displaying your course roster. Check the box next to every student to be included in the exception and then click "Submit." Now, back on the Test Options page you will see the name of each student you have selected, next to each name are a few options such as timer, availability date options and number of submissions allowed. Adjust the Availability Date settings for each student and then click "submit." Keep in mind that the Due Date is still universally applied, so it is necessary to extend it for the submission to not appear as Late. Extending the Due Date of an Assessment that has not been hidden from the rest of class will re-open the assessment to everyone, make sure your universal availability settings are set before creating an Availability Exception
