How to take a Blackboard test

As part of your course, you may be asked to take a Test, to check your understanding of a topic. This may be for feedback only, to help you progress, or it may be as an assessment, with the score being part of your provisional grade.  In all cases, you should allow yourself enough time to complete the test within the deadline, read the instructions carefully, and you should use a recommended browser (Chrome or Firefox) on a stable internet connection.  

For step-by-step guidance, please use the 'Blackboard Help - Tests' link below  (note: we do not use proctored tests).


Below is an example of a Blackboard Ultra Test, showing different types of questions on the left, and Information about the test on the right:
