Submitting an Assessment in Blackboard

Assessments can be delivered in different forms in Blackboard.

Depending on what your instructor requires, you may need to submit a file created on your local computer or you may take your test completely online.

If you are taking an online test, there will be a link in Blackboard to open the assessment, similar to the one below.

Choose or enter an answer for each question and make sure you click on the button to Save Answer after each question.

When you have completed all questions in your assessment, click "Save and Submit" at the bottom of the page so that your test will be sent to your instructor for grading.
