    Blackboard Learn’s advanced assessment capabilities match or exceed those of many dedicated commercial online testing platforms.  In this session, Paul Barney, Supervisor of Curriculum and Assessment at the Higher Colleges of Technology, and Azim Ahmed, Ed Tech Senior Project Manager, demonstrate how their institution uses Blackboard to reliably and securely test up to 4000 students per administration.  The session addresses the three biggest challenges institutions can encounter, solutions to those challenges, and tips and advice for a smooth and problem-free large-scale administration.
