Blackboard Feature Spotlight: Test Availability Exceptions

If you’ve ever wanted to extend the timer or change the availability dates for a specific student, then Test Availability Exceptions (TAE) is an easy way to complete this task. This feature is also a good workaround to reopen exams for students who were absent.

With TAE you can adjust the following settings:

  • Number of Attempts
  • Timer and Auto Submit
  • Availability
  • Force Completion

These settings can be assigned by selecting specific students or by using a group in Blackboard.
