Testing with Students with Disabilities

A common need of students with documented disabilities is additional time on tests. Extending time in BlackBoard assessments can be done by simply editing test options but this creates the issue of adding extra time or other conditions for all students. Currently, the only way to provide accommodations for only one or more students within a course is to make a copy of the test with different settings, and use Adaptive Release to prevent other students from accessing the special version of the test.

The following PDF document will show you exactly how to copy and set up a test to accommodate students with special needs:
