You will need to make adjustments in both the Canvas exam (found in Canvas Quizzes) and in SmarterProctoring, which appears as Schedule Exams in your course navigation. The following covers date extensions and time extensions followed by accommodation settings in SmarterProctoring.

All accommodation resets, reschedules and extensions MUST be entered and confirmed in SmarterProctoring.
