Online tests and quizzes can be created for your students using the Tests function in Blackboard. Tests can be provided as a formative method of assessment, as a self-assessment method for students, or as a more formal means of assessing student performance.
The Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit have recently updated our Blackboard Tests guidance, to support staff in providing online assessment activities for students.

Blackboard Tests for Students
Once you have created and deployed your Test, we recommend that you provide our Blackboard Test taking guidelines to your students.
If a student experiences any problems when taking the Test, you may need to clear the student’s attempt to enable them to re-take the test.
If you’d like any further information on this process or have specific questions, then please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are planning to use tests for formal assessment, please do get in touch.
