Creating Tests Using Question Pools and Random Question Blocks

In this video we’re going to look at how to build a test in Blackboard, using Blackboard’s Test creation tools. Rather than simply build a test, we’re going to show how you can use question pools and random blocks of questions to make it more difficult for students to cheat through collaboration and answer sharing.

If the question-creation process looks too time consuming, IDS can create question pools of some question-types for you if you provide us a properly formatted Word file. This walkthrough outlines how to create a properly formatted word file.


The next step is to deploy the test to give your students access!
