Any advice for taking a test online?
If possible, take your test on a wired internet connection, instead of wireless. It is possible for (although rare) wireless connections to drop out during a test, locking you out. Also, do not take a test on the Bb Mobile App. When submitting your answer only click the “Submit” once. A double click will result in an Access Denied error and will lock you out of the test.

Blackboard Original: Test Overview (video)

I was taking a test and it froze/locked me out/etc. What do I do?
If possible, take a screen shot of the problem/error message you are receiving.

Next, contact your instructor immediately and explain the issue you had while taking the test. They are the only ones who can reset the test for you. Neither IT nor the Online Learning department can reset the test. Additionally, each instructor may have their own rules on test-taking. Please read your course syllabus for more information.

Where Can I Find My Grades in Blackboard

In your course on Blackboard, on the left side navigation, click on “View Grades” or a similarly named button, to see any grades that have been assigned by your instructor. Additional help can be found here for:

Blackboard Original

Blackboard Ultra

Some instructors do not make grades available through Blackboard. In those cases please direct questions to the instructor.

Note: Final grades will be in your student WebAdvisor account, not in Blackboard. To view your final grades, login to myCFCC, and click WebAdvisor. From there click Students and then Grade Point Average by Term.

Does Blackboard have a mobile app?
Yes, Blackboard does have a mobile app for Android, iPhone, and Blackberry devices. The app is designed to be used as a quick way to stay connected to your online course. Do not use it to take a test.
