Deploying a test on Blackboard makes the course available to students. You can also deploy a test, but set dates on when the test can be taken. This will hide the test until the availability date.
Make sure Edit Mode in the top right corner is switched to On.
- Click on Course Content in the left hand menu.
- Hover over Assessments
- Click Test in the drop down menu.
Under Make the Link Available click Yes
Set the other settings for the test. For detailed descriptions of each function, please visit this Blackboard help link.
Click Submit when you have finished configuring the test.
