UB's primary Learning Management System is now UB Learns, powered by Brightspace.


Instructors can set up tests to include a timer, allow multiple attempts or if you must complete it in one sitting.

Instructors determine the location of tests in a course and may use announcements, the course syllabus or other communication methods to let you know where to find them.

Taking a Test

  1. Locate the test.
  2. Click the name of the test.
  3. Read the instructions carefully, if available.
  4. Click Begin.
  5. Click Save and Submit when you finish the test.
  6. Click OK to confirm your submission.

When creating the test, your instructor sets when you can see your grade and if you can review the questions that you answered correctly and incorrectly.
