How do I change my reassessment due date in Blackboard?

In some cases, reassessment due dates may have shifted due to boards being rescheduled, or the incorrect due date may have been set up on the Blackboard assignment originally due to incorrect SITS data. If either of these applies, you will need to update both the due date and availability of your reassessment submission points in your Blackboard module sites. The deadlines have been updated in SITS.

Step 1: Go to the Reassessment content area and locate the reassessment submission point.

Step 2: Select Edit from the contextual menu (click the chevron )

Step 3: Scroll to Due Dates and click the Date Picker  . Select the revised Due Date as told to you by your department:

Nb. You will need to use the navigation arrows to move between months.


Step 4: The revised Due Date will now appear in the Due Date box. Do not change the time.

 Step 5: Scroll to Availability and click the Date Picker . Select the revised Until Date, which is 49 days after the Due Date:

Step 6: The revised Display Until Date will now appear in the Due Date box. Do not change the time.


Step 7: When you are ready to make the reassessment submission point available to students, tick the Make the Assignment Available box.


Step 8: Click Submit to save your changes.

Finally, remember to make the Reassessment area available to students. Click the chevron  to the right of the Reassessment menu item and choose Show Link to Students.
