Why use the Classlist tool?

You can use the Classlist tool to view students enrolled in your course and identify who is currently working online. The classlist allows you to communicate with your students via email.

Important: Student email visibility in the Classlist has been reviewed by the Privacy Officer.

You can use the Classlist tool to:

  • View the students enrolled in your course.
  • Send an email to your class.
  • Print your classlist.

If you have any more questions, please visit the Classlist Frequently Asked Questions page.

Set Quiz Accommodations at the Course Level

This feature enables an instructor to set up a student's quiz accommodation through the Classlist tool. Once granted, this accommodation will apply to all quiz activities in the course. 

Accommodation options currently available include:

  • more time to complete quizzes at the course level
  • the ability to bypass right-click restrictions in quizzes
    (prohibits students from saving or printing quiz questions).

The additional time can be applied in terms of quiz time multipliers (for example, 1.5x quiz time) or +minutes (for example, an additional 30 minutes) on every quiz in a course. Previously, a student's accommodation would have to be added individually to each quiz.

Quiz-specific special access can overwrite an accommodation for any user on a quiz-by-quiz basis. When you overwrite an accommodation and then click Save, a warning describing the impact of overwriting an accommodation appears.

Instructions to Add Course Level Quiz Accommodations

  1. Click on the Communications tab on the Navbar and select Classlist.
  2. Locate the student that requires the accommodation and click on the black drop-down arrow to the right of the student's name.
  3. Click on Edit Accommodations.
  4. Select the required options.
  5. Click Save.

Note: The Accommodations do not appear under the Special Access section, but if you click on Add Users to Special Access you will be able to see the students with the course level accommodation listed.

  1. Go to the Quiz tool and click on the Quiz you wish to edit.
  2. Click on the Restrictions tab and scroll down to Special Access.
  3. Click on Add Users to Special Access and select the student by checking the box. 
  4. Click the Add Special Access button.
