Blackboard Tests & Quizzes Display

A number of students have discovered a troubling issue when accessing a test or quiz in Blackboard. For lengthy written questions, the point value and Save Answer button will partially obscure the question. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, to answer questions sometimes.

WORKAROUND: To read partially-obscured text, press CTRL + and CTRL – (keyboard shortcuts) to grow or shrink text within the browser. This should help you read the entire test or quiz question. Resizing the browser can also help reveal hidden text.
