Instructions for Blackboard Learn 9.1: Setting Availability Exceptions

Availability exceptions can be used to quickly and easily accommodate students who need more time to complete an assessment or who need to access an assessment at a different time.

With Edit Mode ‘ON’, navigate to the list of assessments in your course, click the drop-down menu on the assessment that you want to edit and choose ‘Edit the Test Options.’

We recommend that you NOT use the ‘Force Completion’ feature as it can cause difficulties if students are on an unstable network connection.

Click ‘Submit’ to save your settings.
