Test Tips in Blackboard Learn

Faculty members, as you create and deploy tests in Blackboard Learn, please keep the following tips in mind to ensure the best experience for students:

  • Tell Students - Update the Blackboard App
    • Inform students that they should update their Blackboard mobile app before using it to take a test. Students will experience difficulties if they are not using the latest version of the Blackboard app. If students do experience issues while taking a test, please encourage them to contact the SUNY Online HelpDesk as soon as they experience an issue.

  • Faculty - Check Your Test Settings

    • When deploying a test in your Blackboard Learn course, choose test settings that will help prevent timeout issues as students are taking the test. Within test settings, we recommend that faculty members

      • display questions one at a time, and
      • do not select "Force Completion."

To learn more, please register for an upcoming Blackboard Learn workshop:

If you’re unable to attend a workshop, please view our Blackboard Knowledge Base articles.

Faculty and students who have questions about Blackboard are encouraged to contact the SUNY Online Help Desk, (844) 673-6786; submit a support request online; or chat with a SUNY Online Blackboard specialist.
