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 directional arrows within the test. To complete a test that displays questions all-at-once:
- Quizzes and tests can be identified by their distinctive pencil and scantron icon.
- To begin, click the name of the test, which functions as a hyperlink.
- 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, or click the Save All Answers button to save your work for the entire test.
- Clicking the Save and Submit button will end your attempt and submit your test for grading.
- You will receive a receipt that confirms your test was submitted successfully.
