There are a couple of ways to upload questions to blackboard for use in tests.
- There are a couple of open source test generators. They are basic and rely on the blackboard test question import. These have worked in the past but are very bare bones. They are most usefull to import question banks or sets of questions. One could also keep questions in a spreadsheet and upload them as needed. For more information see http://www.cod.edu/it/blackboard/testgenerators.htm
- Use Respondus software to create and upload questions, requires individual licenses for each user. Respondus.com
- One can still enter questions by typing or copying questions question by question.
Blackboard provides information on question upload at help.blackboard.com.
