Blackboard - User Management - Upload Test Questions

The Assessment tools allow you to create tests and surveys that automatically become an item in your Gradebook. Students complete these assessments and submit them through Blackboard. Instructors can upload test questions into a Test using a document saved as a Text file, (extension .txt). This document can contain multiple questions of different types in a single file. Each question must be specifically formatted as explained in the Uploading test questions FAQ.

In this tutorial you will learn how to navigate to the Test Manager area and upload test questions using a text document.
