Blackboard archives are for backup and transfer to other Blackboard servers. Archives cannot be used for retrieving documents, tests, etc. since they are compressed database files. If you want to transfer an exam from an old course, go into the course, export the test and then import to the new course following the steps below.

  • In Old course, under Course Tools in the Course Management panel, select Test, Surveys, and Pools
    • Click on Tests or Pools depending on what you would like to export.
    • Click on the down arrow icon next to the item you would like to export and click Export. Save to local computer.
  • In the New course, under Course Tools in the Course Management panel, select Test, Surveys, and Pools
    • Click the Import Test or Import Pool; navigate to where the item is stored on the local computer and import.
