Overview

RegisterBlast is a web-based scheduling tool for faculty to request in-person proctored exams at a campus Testing Center and for students to schedule an exam time within the faculty's exam window. Both faculty and students can access RegisterBlast from inside their Canvas course.

Faculty

Add RegisterBlast to your Canvas course

RegisterBlast is hidden by default.

To add a hidden tool to your course navigation menu, see How do I manage Course Navigation links?

Request an exam block

Note:

Classes are not added to RegisterBlast until one week after the term begins to allow time for block schedules to populate in SIS. If you need to schedule an exam in the first two weeks of the course, email your campus Testing Center:

The Testing Center will manually load your course in RegisterBlast.

  1. In your Canvas course, select RegisterBlast from the course navigation menu.
  2. Select Submissions.
  3. Select + (the plus sign).
  4. Enter the course name, course number, section number, exam(s), exam day(s), and exam length.
  5. Select Submit.

You'll receive a confirmation message when your exam is approved.

View student history

Faculty can view all student history for their classes in RegisterBlast. The History tool lets you see the dates and times students registered for, when they arrived and when they left, and whether they walked in, had a reservation, canceled, or no-showed.

  1. In your Canvas course, select RegisterBlast from the course navigation menu.
  2. In the header, select History.
  3. Type the student's first or last name in the "Search" field, or adjust the "From Date" and "To Date" date pickers, and then select Apply.
