The most common presentation style for a quiz in Blackboard is to display questions “All-at-once.” This is similar to the layout we’re used to with paper-based tests, with all questions displayed on a single page. Instructors may opt for a second format, displaying questions “One-at-a-time.” This style presents only a single question on the screen at one time, and you must navigate between between questions using navigational arrows within the test.
To complete a test that displays questions one-at-a-time:
- Quizzes and tests can be identified by their distinctive pencil and scantron icon.
- Click on the name of the test.
- Click the Begin button.
- If the test has a time limit, the amount of time remaining for your attempt will be displayed at the top of the screen.
- Click the Question Completion Status link to display an index of questions that are complete and incomplete.
- Questions that have been answered and saved take on a grey appearance, while questions that have not yet been answered or saved remain blank.
- After you have entered a question, Blackboard will typically auto-save your work within a few seconds.
- However, you can also manually save your progress using the Save Answer button for an individual question.
- After you have entered an answer, you must navigate to the next question by clicking the Next Question button.
- To move back to the previous question, click the Previous Question button.
- You can also navigate to a specific question by clicking the question number on the Question Completion Status bar.
Warning: It is critical that you navigate between questions using the navigational arrows included within the test or by selecting a specific question on the Question Completion Status bar.
Never use the arrows in the top-left corner of your web browser.
- Once you have completed the test, click the Save and Submit button.
- You will receive a receipt confirming that your test was submitted successfully.
