Calculated Formulas in Blackboard

Created by Alan Feinerman, Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Science Engineering Department

This video will introduce you to calculated formulas in Blackboard’s Test tools.

The Calculated formulas tool is especially useful in giving students practice with problems that require detailed calculations.

Blackboard’s “calculated formula” questions are a great way to offer multiple versions of the same engineering or science problem for students since the variables can be randomized which prevents copying answers from other students or from previous classes. Blackboard also grades the students’ answers, and can offer suggestions on what they should study if they get an incorrect answer.
