Blackboard Tests - Correcting Errors

Questions and answers on what changes can be made to a Blackboard Test once some or all students have submitted their responses.

Can I add questions once a test is available and some or all students have submitted responses?


Once a test has been taken by students, 


You cannot,

  • add more questions
  • change the number of questions in a question set
  • change a random block in the test

You can correct,

  • the wording in a test
  • errors in assigning right and wrong answers
  • delete a question which contained errors

If you change the wording of questions / answers, or change the order of questions in a test, existing student marks are not affected


If you,

  • change answer choices
  • change the possible points for a question
  • delete a question

Blackboard will automatically ‘regrade’ all completed student attempts. 

For more information on regrading go to Blackboard - Automated Regrading Tests
