Assessment Exceptions in the Blackboard Ultra Course View

This tutorial demonstrates how to use grant assessment exceptions in the Blackboard Ultra course view. When special circumstances arise, you may allow an exception on a specific test or assignment to an individual student. An exception includes additional attempts or extended access, even if the assessment is hidden from other students. An exception overrides the two settings applied to everyone else for that specific assessment only. Students don't see the exceptions you've added. You might use exceptions for students who have internet issues, disabilities, or technology and language differences.
