There are a few ways to create tests in Blackboard. The most common is to create one using the Course Tools Test wizard located in the Control Panel. To create a test using this method: 

  1. On the Control Panel, under Course Tools, click Tests, Surveys, and Pools.
  1. On the Tests, Surveys, and Pools page, click Tests.

The Tests page displays any existing tests, allows you to build new tests, or import tests from other courses.

  1. To start a new test, click "Build Test." 
  2. On the Test Information page, type a name, and optional description and instructions.
  3. Click Submit.
  4. On the Test Canvas, point to Create Question on the action bar to access the drop-down list.
  5. Select a question type.
  6. On the Create/Edit page, provide the necessary information to create a question.
  7. Click Submit.
  8. On the Test Canvas, you can change a question's point value.
    • Click a question's current point value.
    • In the Update Points pop-up box, edit the points.
    • Click Submit.
  9. Repeat Step 6 through Step 9 to add more questions.
  10. Click OK. The test is added to the list on the Tests page and is ready to deploy in a content area.
