Viewing Test Grades
Most test questions are auto-graded. When creating the test, your instructor will define the correct answers and assign points to each question. When you submit your test, Blackboard checks your answers and assigns the score.
Essay, File Response, and Short Answer questions are not auto-graded and your instructor will manually grade these questions after you complete your test. Grades for tests with these types of questions are released after your instructor has finished grading.
To view your test grades and any additional feedback from your instructor, go to your My Grades area and select your test.
