Student Step 3: Taking Tests

​B​elow are the steps necessary to complete an assessment in your Blackboard Learn course.​

Taking Tests

The Test tool allows you to take Assessments: tests, quizzes, exams or complete surveys online. Instructors can place links to tests in any content area, although some may have created a Tests/ Exams or Quizzes area in the Course Tools Menu. Your instructor will identify where to take exams in his or her course.

1. To begin a Test, click the title of the test, exam, quiz, or survey.

6. Blackboard will then ask you to confirm your assessment submission. Click OK.
