What About Giving a Practice Test on Tests?
Why? Students new to online courses may not understand the intricacies of taking a test within Blackboard. Although you carefully write instructions telling students that there is a time limit on the test and that they may only take the exam one time, you have no idea if students really understand the importance of these instructions. Consider developing a practice exam requiring students to use the testing features so they get some practice. Some instructors use these exams to gain information on existing knowledge and to provide practice on testing within Blackboard.
