Hi

Couldn't you make it so that someone (a test administrator with
different user privelleges) can log in and specify the extra tima user
can have for a test?
In the academic world double time for blind students is common, but of
course it depends on the subject (math is more time consuming for a
blind person than, say, history for instance).
So there is definitely no simple answer, you can allow either 50%
extra time or double time as a default, but best solution would be to
have someone who can set alotted the extra time in your module.
Give user something like a 5-minute and 1-minute warnings before the
session expires. Make it intrusive, I'd use a message box, but some
think that's too much, matter of opinion.
