How do I clear a students test attempt in Blackboard? (Staff)

Problems can arise during a test if:

  • a student clicks the Back button in their browser.
  • their browser freezes.
  • their computer crashes.

If the test is set to allow one attempt only, the student will receive a message saying that they cannot take the test again and you must clear the student's attempt to enable them to retake the test.

To clear a student's attempt:

  • Under the the Control Panel, click on Grade Centre and then Full Grade Centre.
  • Find the Grade Centre Column that corresponds to the test.
  • Click on a the drop down arrow next to the student grade for the test.
  • Click View Grade Details.

  • Click on the Clear Attempt button for the test attempt you wish to clear.
