With the new test option features in Blackboard SP14, you no longer have to create an alternative test for extended time for a student taking a test in Blackboard. The situation where this would be used is when the student has a documented disability with the Office of Student Disabilities. You will now notice that the Test Options screen has a new feature called Test Availability Exceptions. This new feature allows you to select a single or group of students to make adjustments to the timer or force completion. This tutorial will cover the steps to edit the test options for a student who needs extra time.
The first step once inside the test options screen, will be to click “Add Users or Group”
The next step will be to select the user(s) or group(s) that need to have alternative exceptions for this particular test.
The next screen would show you the current setting and allow you to make adjustments or remove the exceptions.
After making your adjustments to your timer or force submit, you will be all set.
This process is much easier than the previous steps to make an alternative test with extended time.
