How to Add the Test to Your Course
The following steps outline how to import and deploy a test to students. For more details on using tests in your blackboard course, see the article on using Tests in Blackboard.
Part 1: Download the test and import it into your course
- Download the zip file
- In your Blackboard Course go to Control Panel > Course Tools > Tests, Surveys, and Pools.
- Click the Tests link.
- Click Import Test, then click on Browse My Computer to select the zip file you just downloaded.
- Click Open and then click Submit.
Part 2: Deploy the test to students
- Go to a Content Area, such as the Syllabus.
- Click the Assessments button and choose Test.
- You should see Academic Integrity Agreement listed. Select it and click Submit.
- You should now be on the “Test Options” page. Here, under Test Availability, click Yes next to Make the Link Available.
- Scroll down to Self Assessment Options and UN-check the box next to Include this Test in Grade Center Score Calculations (assuming you don’t want student to receive credit for it towards their grade).
- Under Show Test Results and Feedback To Students, you can check the box next to All Answers as well as below the Feedback column for the first row.
- Click Submit.
Verify students’ agreement
To see which students have opened the file and answered yes, go to the Grade Center. In the column that Bb automatically created for this test, you should see a “1” for tests completed correctly (1 point for the question). No grade means they have not taken the test. A zero grade means they did not agree to the policy.
Again, the point won’t be included in their Grade Center total calculations if you followed Step 5 and un-checked the box below Self Assessment Options.
