About Respondus Test Creation Software

Last Updated: Nov 18, 2014 09:41AM PST
Respondus is a powerful software that can be used to create, edit, and deploy online exams in Blackboard. Respondus allows you to create or convert a Word Document into a Blackboard-ready online exam. You have options to create random blocks of questions in order to cut down on cheating.  You can also create "question sets" which might come from specific chapters or contain certain types of question. Once you create your exam using either Respondus or Microsoft Word, Respondus has the ability to upload your finished exam straight into your Blackboard course. You can also extract existing tests from Blackboard and bring them into Respondus for editing or printing.

There are many useful videos (
