The export tests, surveys, and pools option allows instructors to share, as well as to save and archive tests, surveys, and pools for later use. Tests, surveys, and pools are exported by Blackboard as .zip file packages, and then can be imported for use in other courses.

To export a Test, Survey, or Pool:

  1. Click the Course Tools link of the Control Panel.
  2. Click Tests, Surveys, and Pools on the expanded menu.
