Q. How do I view the results from a Blackboard test or survey?


Tests vs Surveys

Test survey results are viewable for each student in the grade centre, whereas survey results are anonymous and only overall feedback can be seen by the instructor, see details on how to access each below. 

Viewing Test Results in the Blackboard Grade Centre.

Once a test or survey has been released to students and they have participated the submissions will be accessible from the grade centre. 

Tests set to automatically grade a question will give a numeric result in the grade centre, whereas those with open questions will require a tutor goes into each submission to grade manually.
