Add a Test Student to your Online Course

If you have been using Blackboard 9 for a while you are aware that faculty Student View does not give you a true image of what your student’s experiences. A new building block, Add a Test Student, fixes that problem by allowing instructors to add test student in their class without involving the admin staff.

To add a test student log into the course as instructor. Under the Control Panel click Course Tools> Add Test Student.

Add Test Student

Blackboard will create a test student using the account name in which you are logged into blackboard and add a “_s.” Choose you own password and select enroll and submit.

To use the account, log out as instructor and log back in under the test student account information.

Removing the Test Student from your course.

When you want to remove the test student, log in as the instructor. Under the Control Panel click Course Tools> Add Test Student> Delete or Unenroll Test Student.
