Grant a Quiz Time Extension

Time extensions can be used to grant additional time when the quiz is open for an extended period with a time limit, for example the quiz is open from 9:00 am -  5:00 pm, and has a 2 hour time limit to complete. Time extension allows additional time, on top of the 2 hour time limit, within the open period.  To grant extra time in a fixed period quiz, eg in an exam situation where the quiz will only be open for the exam period eg 9:00 - 12:00, use Extension date / time to support use cases such as student access plans.
