Taking Tests/Quizzes

The Test tool allows students to take tests/quizzes/exams or complete surveys online. Instructors can place Test, Quiz, Exam or Survey links in any content area, although some may have created an Assessments area in the Course Tools Menu. Your instructor will identify where in your Blackboard course a Test is available and when to begin the Test.

Note: More information about Tests can be found on Blackboard’s Testing Best Practices Page.
