Blackboard Assignments

Sometimes your instructor will not use a Turnitin Assessment link but will instead use a Blackboard Assignment.  This is usually because you have to submit a file type that Turnitin does not produce Originality Reports for.  Submitting a Blackboard assignment is similar to submitting a Turnitin assessment - and more help can be found at Blackboard Submit Assignments help for students.

Blackboard Tests (Quizzes)

Instructors use tests to assess your understanding of course content and objectives. Your instructor assigns point values to questions in a test. You submit your test for grading, and the results are recorded. You can view your grades when your instructor makes them available to you.

Full instructions on how to submit a Blackboard test can be found at Blackboard Tests and Surveys help for students.
