📌 Tool Tip: Online Blackboard Exam Setup Instructions for Spring 2020

We want to thank you for your patience this semester in dealing with the Respondus at home testing issue we discovered back in early September 2019.

The Blackboard test duplication measures we were forced to enact were the easiest ones to do to ensure that your exams were proctored securely but unfortunately they were considerably labor-intensive to set up.

We truly appreciate your patience while we dealt with this and tried to find a permanent fix.

We would like to elaborate on that point in that such a fix has been found and is currently being implemented.  Thanks to the cooperation of the Blackboard team, IT and the testing centers, we am happy to announce that test duplication will not be necessary for Spring 2020.  All courses that have Blackboard tests in them will only need the singular, original version.
