Giving Scantron exams in classes can be time consuming when you consider the time it takes to grade and print exams. We now have the ability to offer secure electronic exams in the classroom using student laptops and Respondus LockDown Browser.
When giving an exam, we want things to go smoothly. Oftentimes there are situations that arise that cause problems for both instructors and students. We have found that selecting force completion on exams and quizzes in Blackboard is one of those instances. So, what is force completion and why does it cause so many issues?

Do your student ever get the blues? This song is all about the scantron, wireless, and homework submitting blues.
In honor of Bikes, Blues, and Barbecue, we bring you the “Bubbled In Blues.”
Do you have a syllabus quiz that you give to students? The Office of Academic Initiatives and Integrity created some quiz questions that you can import into Blackboard to quiz your students on the U of A’s academic integrity policy. You can any or all of these questions and even add your own.
Did you know that you can import existing exams, quizzes, and surveys into Blackboard? For example if you would like to import the academic integrity quiz questions provided by the Office of Academic Initiatives and Integrity (found on TIPS) you can!
Scantrons are an easy testing or survey tool and there are a variety of options for both scoring and generating reports.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within a learning management system.
To print exams from Blackboard you will need to use the Respondus test creation tool. This tool will allow you to retrieve the exam from Blackboard and print from your computer. Respondus can be downloaded from the Software tab in Blackboard if you do not already have it installed on your computer.
