Why use this? Rather than use Force Completion, in which students get locked out of an exam, the Auto-Submit feature allows students to re-enter an exam if their browser freezes.
Test Availability Exceptions:
Why use this? Exceptions can be used to provide an accommodation to a student with a disability or provide accommodations for technology and language differences. Exceptions can be created for the number of attempts, timer, and availability.
View Test Statistics:
Why use this? When students are performing poorly on a test, instructors can review test statistics in Blackboard to identify problematic questions that may need revision.
Respondus Lock-Down Browser:
Why use this? This allows you to “lock down” the testing environment in Blackboard, so that students cannot access other websites or applications until the test is submitted.
