Respondus is a Windows application that enhances the functionality and usability of the Bb Learn Assessment tool. Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Bb Learn. The University of Northern Iowa has obtained a campus-wide license for the Respondus software.
Information about the Respondus software and the Respondus Test Bank Network (a free service that allows instructors to download publisher test banks) is available on the Respondus home page.
“I have used Respondus for several semesters and have found it to be very helpful and convenient for importing and then transferring questions for quizzes on eLearning. In Respondus, I usually choose the option of using a pool of questions, from which I can create the quiz in eLearning with a designated number of questions that will then be randomly assigned to each student. In this way, students receive a different set of questions. This is especially useful and effective for online quizzes.” - Sophia D. Min, UNI Faculty Member
