For Students

Completing a Test, Quiz, or Survey in Blackboard

Tests, Quizzes and Surveys are types of assessments that faculty may create in Blackboard to test the knowledge and skill level of the users enrolled in the course. 

For tests and quizzes, the faculty member usually assigns point values to questions, and when students' answers are submitted for grading, the results are automatically recorded in Blackboard's Grade Center.  Surveys generally are not assigned a point value, but the submission process is the same.

There are many types of questions that can be included in a Test or a Quiz.  Common question types that are auto-graded include:

  • Multiple Choice
  • True/False
  • Matching
  • Fill in the Blank

Essay or Short Answer questions may also be assigned and are answered in the provided text box. These question types are manually graded by the faculty member.

How to Submit

Tests, Quizzes, and Surveys are typically located within the Assessments Content Area.

  1. Locate an Assessment in a Content Area and click the link associated with it.
Access a Test
  1. Click Begin to take the Assessment.

    Click Begin

Note:  Faculty may choose to have users enter a password to begin taking an Assessment. If necessary, enter the valid password and click Submit to begin the Assessment. The Assessment continues to prompt for a valid password until the correct one is entered.

If the Assessment is timed, the remaining time appears at the top of the test or quiz

WARNING!  It is important that users do not use the Back button in the Browser during an Assessment. This may cause loss of data.
