If you have created a test in another Blackboard course or with a third-party utility, you may need to import it into Blackboard. In addition, if you create a test that you might want to use in another Blackboard course, you can export that test to your computer and then import the file to the destination course.

Additional information regarding exporting test questions

The following information is from Blackboard Documentation.

All questions are now retained in exported and imported tests, including questions that originate outside the exported test, such as Question Sets, Random Blocks, and Question Links. When the user exports a test and imports it back into a different course, all questions are now present irrespective of their origin.

Questions that are in question sets and random blocks in the originating test are imported into the new course in question pools. Single questions that were linked in the originating test are imported as “native” (non-linked) questions.
