Questions can be modified before the quiz is made available (deployed) to students: Control Panel click Assessment click Test Manager click [modify selected quiz]. Be certain to review the questions carefully before deploying it to a Content Area for delivery to students.
Quizzes can be modified, even after student grades are posted: Control Panel click (content area where test is posted)click Modify click Modify the test. Remember that the students who have already taken the test will not see the changes you have made to the questions nor will their grades be altered by any changes you make to the grading considerations for the quiz. For these reasons, modifying a test after deployment is not advised.
Remind students that successfully taking a test in Blackboard requires them to follow a few simple guidelines: (1) do NOT use the browser's back button to navigate during a test. The back button will invariably result in an error. (2) Do not begin a test unless you have time to complete it. Once you open an exam, you must finish and submit or you will lose your chance to take the test. (3) Do NOT attempt to take the test through AOL. You may be allowed into the exam but will experience problems when trying to submit it. (4) If you finish the test and submit but get an error message, contact your Faculty Member immediately.
