There continue to be reports of problems with the Forced Completion feature in Blackboard tests. This features automatically submits a test after a period of time. Unfortunately this feature causes students to get kicked out of their test. Paige Brooks Jeffiers in the systems office offers this solution: "You can use the timer on the test so you can see when the student started the test and when they submitted the test (even if they leave and come back) to ensure they aren’t in for too long allowing them to look up answers and such. Plus if you do this and the students save their answers and get kicked out, they can go back in to the test and pick up where they were when being kicked out."
