Many instructors administering online exams are concerned about cheating. The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence offers guidance on alternatives to traditional exams for student assessment. While there are strategies you can employ to help reduce cheating you should also expect that students will access class materials while taking the test. Blackboard does not limit a student's browser to the exam window and it cannot prevent them from accessing resources on other devices. Blackboard tests are best used as open note/open book tests or as practice tests for students to review course materials.
