Students should logout of Blackboard and back in before taking exams. Make sure your students have completely logged out of Blackboard first – use the log-out icon in the top right corner – before logging back into Blackboard to begin an exam. This helps prevent time-out errors which can result in frantic emails and phone calls.
Avoid using Internet Explorer. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome will provide a much better Blackboard experience than Internet Explorer.
Communicate expectations with students. Communicate with your students to let them know how you expect assignments to be submitted. For more information on how to give a good test in Blackboard, see our Blackboard Testing Tips.
