New Test Features in SP11

There are three significant improvements to tests in Service Pack 11:

1. Automatic Regrading - If you need to change the point value of a question, delete a question, or give students full or extra credit, Blackboard will now automatically regrade the test. It will also regrade if you have to change the answer you designated as correct when you created the test.

You can use this information to improve questions for future test administrations or to adjust credit on current attempts.
