Tips for Successful Test Submission in Blackboard

Dear Faculty –   At this time of the semester with final exams being accessed in Blackboard, we have some tips that might help with successful test submissions by students:

  • Please consider allowing extra time on the exam.
  • During this high-traffic time on our servers, consider having all test questions show up, rather than one at a time.
  • Consider not checking “force completion” in the test settings – in the event of a lockout for whatever reason, the student could log back in and finish (timer continues to run, so they are not allowed extra time).

If your students report issues please have them submit a helpdesk ticket.
