Tests, Surveys and Pools
Tests and surveys in Blackboard can be used to:
- provide graded testing of student skill and knowledge
- conduct class polls
- obtain student feedback
Automatic evaluation (in the case of multiple choice Tests) and updates to the class Grade Center are but two of the a advantages to delivering assessments through Blackboard
Tests vs. SurveysAlthough we will regularly be referring to Tests specifically, most of the instructions and information also apply to Surveys.
Main differences between Tests and surveys:
- Tests are linked to particular students, while surveys are anonymous
- Tests are graded, while surveys are not
- Completion of a survey is indicated by a checkmark in the Grade Center, instead of a grade.
