Export and Import Self and Peer Assessments

This information applies only to the Original Course View. Your institution controls which tools are available.

You can export Self and Peer Assessments to save them outside of Blackboard Learn. You can import them as needed.

You can import assessments from Course Files, the Content Collection, or your computer.

Import an assessment

  1. Access a content area. From the Assessments menu, select Self and Peer Assessment.
  2. On the Create Self and Peer Assessment page, select Import.
  3. Browse to locate the assessment file.
  4. Type a a name for the imported assessment. If you don't type a name, the imported assessment name is used.
  5. Select Submit.

If the start date of the imported assessment is in the past, the system resets it to 24 hours from the time it's imported. All other dates are adjusted forward in time and maintain the same relationships that were established in the original assessment. For example, if you import an assessment with a due date four weeks after the start date, the new default start date would be tomorrow. The due date would be four weeks plus one day.
