Follow the steps below to create a test availability exception:

  1. Go into your Blackboard course site and locate your test or quiz in the course.
  2. Click the down chevron arrow next to the name of the test and then select Edit the Test Options
  3. Scroll down to Test Availability Exceptions to give specific students different test availability options. 
  4. Click Add User or Group.
