Pools

Blackboard allows you to have many different pools, or test banks.

 

Organizing Data in your Pools

Within the pools you can create categories and tags. This allows you to organize the questions with each pool. You must remember that if you are working with categories and tags that you are working within all the pools.

Lets say you need to change a group of questions from one category to another. You go into the pool with the questions that need to be changed. You access the category and changed them. Doing this will not only change the questions in the pool you are in but also all pools within your course that use the same category or tag.

 

Limitations

You cannot export exams you’ve built from a pool, because the questions do not reside within the test – the test points to them in the pool.  You can still print the exams, though.
