Exporting Tests, Surveys, and Pools

You can export tests, surveys, and pools. This is an effective way to share them with other instructors, as well as to save and archive tests, surveys, and pools for later use.

Tests, surveys, and pools are exported by Blackboard Learn as ZIP files, and then you or another instructor can import them for use in other courses.

How to Export a Test, Survey, or Pool

  1. On the Control Panel, expand the Course Tools section and select Tests, Surveys, and Pools.
  2. On the Tests, Surveys, and Pools page, click Pools.
  3. On the Pools page, access the contextual menu for a test, survey, or pool.
  4. Select Export.
  5. Click OK in the pop-up window to save the file.

If your institution licenses content management, two export options will appear in the contextual menu. To save the file to your computer, choose Export to Local Computer. To save the file in the Content Collection, choose Export to Content Collection.
