Online Assessment with Blackboard (PDF logo PDF File 652K)
Blackboard's assessment features provide instructors with a form for building online assessments using different question types. These assessments provide students with immediate feedback, are automatically graded, (with the exception of essay questions), and scores are logged into the online Grade Center. Instructors can use the Assessment features to test student knowledge, measure student progress, and gather information from students.

"Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard ... and other eLearning systems. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment, or moved from one eLearning system to another."
