Use Bulk Accommodations to Apply IEP and 504 Accommodations

Intended Audience: Collaborative Instructors
This article pertains to courses taught by local teachers as part of a collaborative partnership.


Brightspace offers teachers a few options to apply accommodations for students with an IEP or 504 Plan. One such option is to apply accommodations that will be effective for all quizzes in the course. This bulk accommodations option allows you to modify the time limit on quizzes. However, please note that this article is specifically intended for instructors teaching in the Collaborative model, as Michigan Virtual instructors do not have the same permissions and will not be able to access the Edit Accommodations feature.


  1. First, within your Brightspace course, go to the Course Admin page and then tap Classlist.
  2. Next, locate the student that you want to apply accommodations for and click the drop-down menu next to their name and choose Edit Accommodations.
  3. Then change the time limit by checking the box next to Modify Time Limit and enter either:
    • a multiplier, or 
    • the number of extra minutes allowed on the quiz.
  4. At this point, click the Save button to apply the changes.
    The Edit Accommodations section is shown with arrows pointing to the Modify Time Limit checkbox and to the save button.
    When students have bulk accommodations set, a gear icon will appear next to their name on the Classlist page.
    An image of the Learner is shown with an arrow pointing to the icon which appears as a gear behind a profile image.
    The accommodations made will apply to the student on all quizzes throughout the entire course.
