Allow spell check for all students in a specific exam

1. Go to your exam library and click on "Edit" for the exam that you wish to enable spell check for (see figure 1).

Allow spell check for all students in a scheduled planned exam

When an exam is planned you have the possibility to allow spell check for all students taking that specific planned exam. The setting is not saved to the exam in your library, it only applies for the specific planned exam that you created.

Enable the setting by checking the box "Allow all students to use spell check" (see figure 3 for example) in the scheduling settings that appears when you plan an exam.
