Submitting TES Form

ABOUT ISU AdminTools

ISU AdminTools, available in Blackboard Learn’s Course Tools menu, allows instructors to manage enrollment, submit grades and submit Test & Evaluation Services (TES) forms so that scores are automatically uploaded to a Bb Learn Course.

NOTE: Certain functions of this tool (Auto-Enroll and Grade Submittal) can only be used by individuals who are listed as Instructors of Record according to the Registrar and also have the role of Instructor in the Blackboard course. If you need to be listed as an Instructor of Record, you need to contact your department secretary or the Registrar (Blackboard support staff cannot update Registrar records).
