Blackboard - Automated Regrading Tests

Test questions and answers can be edited after a test has been submitted by some or all students and submitted for regrading to update the Grade Center.

Instructors can edit individual questions in Blackboard tests, even though some or all students have submitted their answers.  Start with editing the invalid question directly and all necessary updates will flow automatically to the Grade Center. For any given question, Blackboard allows instructors to drop, give full credit, change point value, or change the correct answer. After the question has been updated, Blackboard recalculates the score of all submitted assessments that included the updated question, reflects the updates in the Grade Center, and provides notification to both the instructor and optionally to the students for all submissions that were adjusted due to the changes.
