Blackboard - Test Availability Exceptions

These settings allows instructors to select one or more groups of students and make a number of exceptions to the already established availability settings. Instructors can use exceptions to provide an accommodation to a disabled student, or provide accommodations for technology and language differences.
You can change these settings at any time, even after the test has been attempted by some students. If conflicts in rules occur, the most permissive settings for that user or group of users is granted.

1. Open the Edit Test Options page, Scroll down to step 3, "Test Availability Exceptions" and click on the "Add User or Group" button.

2. Check the box beside the name of the student or groups you wish to grant the exception and click on "Submit".

3. Change the settings for the test to match the necessary accommodation for the student or group of students. Click on the Submit button when complete to save the setting.

You can create exceptions for:
1. Number of attempts.
2. Time for the test.
3. Availability of test using start and end dates.
4. Force completion on or off.

Click submit at the top or bottom of the page when done to save the settings.
