Creating online tests and quizzes using Blackboard is a useful tool to assess students’ understanding (with grades) in certain concepts in a course. In some situations, you may need to modify something in the questions. After one or more students have taken the quiz and you try to modify any question, Blackboard allows you to modify the questions prompting a warning message:

Please do it NOW! Archive your online courses at Learn@PolyU!

Do you want to know more about how effective your Blackboard course is? Do you want to increase your students’ success by understanding more about their online behaviour in your Blackboard course? If you are interested in analysing the data to answer the above questions, you should read this blog. It will introduce to you how to make use of the course archive to achieve this.

How about course reports?

You may have a question: There is already a course reports function in Blackboard. Why do I need to use this archive to analyse my courses? The reason is simple -- the content of the bundled course reports function is  quite limited. Do you want to obtain raw data or detailed data for customizing your own report? We have discovered a way that archiving your Blackboard course could help you to obtain the raw data. Details of that method will be introduced later. Nevertheless, you should archive your course ASAP and should perform it before 14th July, 2017.

Apart from knowing the difficulty of a question you asked in a blackboard test, do you want to analyse the data in your own way? For example, you could analyse the correlation among questions or analyse student scores by combining them with other data sources, say their exam result. In order to carry out advanced analysis, instructors can download students' test submissions through the Download Results page. However, a minor bug was found recently in this feature. By reading this blog, you will know more about this bug and the workarounds suggested by ITS and Blackboard.
