  •  To add an accommodation, click on the Students tab at the top of the Examity dashboard.

  •  On the Student tab, click on the Search button.


  • Search for the student by entering their first name, last name, and/or email address.

  • Then, click on the pencil icon located in the row of the student who requires the accommodation.

Step 2: Configure Individual Testing Settings in Moodle or 3rd Party Testing Site

  • Accommodations must also be set up in Moodle (or 3rd party testing site).

  • In Moodle, Add a User Override to allow extra time or an alternate testing window.

  • For 3rd party testing sites, contact vendor support for their procedures.
