  • Once you have made a student an exception, that student will not be affected by the class setting for the preference, unless you remove the student from the exception list.
  • What is an exception to a preference? Two preferences (Problem Format and Question Type) allow you to set the preference for all of the students in a class and also set it individually for one or more students. When you set one or both of these preferences for an individual student, it is known as an exception.
