Taking the highest score from a multi-attempt test

A professor gives her students two attempts when giving them tests on Blackboard, and wants the highest score to count as the test’s final grade. How is this done? Blackboard support answers:

The control over which grade to use for the assessment is done within the Grade Center settings.
1) Click on the chevron of the grade center column for the test.
2) Select “Edit Column Information.”
3) Update the field ‘Score attempts using’ as desired – use the drop-down to select “Highest Grade” (in this case).
4) Submit the change.
