Remove Honorlock from a Quiz (exam) for OAS accommodations

The Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) provides testing accommodations and proctoring services for students registered with them to receive academic accommodations. In some cases, a student's accommodation may require OAS proctoring without the use of Honorlock. The student and OAS may need you to create a duplicate copy of your Quiz (exam) so that Honorlock can be disabled for just the accommodated student while leaving Honorlock in place for the rest of the class. Please contact the the Office of Accessibility Services so that you can provide the Quiz access code for their proctors and to communicate regarding  student's specific academic accommodations.

OAS lists extended time on exams, quizzes, and tests as one of the most common accommodations faculty will see on an accommodations letter at FSU. If any of your students are supposed to receive extra time, remember to review this How to allow extra time for student(s) on a Canvas assessment article to ensure your students will receive the extra time stipulated in their OAS accommodations letter provided to you at the start of the term.

  2. Select Quizzes on the course navigation menu and locate the Quiz (exam) which needs to be duplicated.

  4. Change the OAS quiz's assignment group so that it matches the assignment group of the original quiz.

    Please note: The duplicated quiz will always be added to “Imported Assignments” regardless of the original quiz's assignment group. It is especially important to ensure that the duplicated OAS quiz is in the same assignment group as the original quiz version in courses that utilize assignment group weights for grade calculation purposes.

  5. For the duplicated OAS quiz version, remove “Everyone” from the Assign window and instead add the names of any student(s) who will take the duplicate OAS version. If different availability dates are needed for the duplicate OAS quiz version, make sure to enter them in.

  6. Select the Save button.
  7. You will get a popup warning stating that the duplicate OAS quiz is not assigned to the entire class. Select the Continue button in the pop-up warning window

Part 3: Remove remnant Honorlock information from duplicated OAS quiz

The duplicated OAS Quiz will retain some remnant Honorlock information copied from the original quiz version. This will interfere with the settings for the OAS tester(s), so the unseen information needs to be deleted. The easiest way to do this is to enable and then disable Honorlock.

  1. On your course's navigation menu select Honorlock.
  2. Locate your duplicated OAS quiz. Select the Enable button that corresponds to your recently duplicated OAS quiz.
    (Click image below to enlarge it)
  3. Scroll past the settings and select the Save button. You will be redirected back to the Honorlock page.
  4. Select the Settings button that corresponds to your recently duplicated OAS quiz.
  5. Scroll past the settings options and select the red Disable button.

Part 4: Add an access code to your OAS quiz version

  1. Return to the Quiz edit page for your recently duplicated OAS Quiz.
  2. Check the Require an access code box and type in the access code that you wish to use.

    You will need to share the quiz access code with the Office of Accessibility Services and should not be share with your student(s). This access code is in place to prevent your students from accessing the quiz outside of the desired proctoring environment at the Office of Accessibility Services.

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the quiz settings page and select the Save button.

Part 5: Gradebook settings

Your student(s) taking the OAS quiz need to be excused from the original Quiz so that they are not penalized for not taking the original version by the Canvas gradebook.

  1. On the course navigation menu select Grades.
  2. Find the row for your student and the column for the original Honorlock version of the exam. You can use the search bar at the top of the page to isolate a single student's grade row.
  3. Select the grade cell.
  4. Excuse the student from this exam version by typing "ex" in the cell. Then, press enter on your keyboard, or click on a different cell.

    Alternatively, if you want to avoid typing, click on the cell and select the arrow-surrounded-by-rectangle icon that appears in the right of the cell. In the panel that appears on the right of the screen, select the yellow excused radio button.
