Test Question Types

Last Updated: Jul 29, 2014 03:06PM PDT

There are several question types available for use when creating Blackboard tests. We recommend the use of the following question types because they seem to cause less problems and grading can be done automatically by Blackboard:  Hot Spot, Matching, Multiple Choice, Opinion Scale/Likert, Ordering and True/False.

Essay, Short Answer, and File Response are also good choices; but cannot be graded without instructor interaction (i.e. grading them manually).

NOTE: that the default point value as you create questions is 10 points. You can change each question manually or use the Select "All" option and change them all at once. When you finish adding questions, simply press "OK" in the lower right corner.
