Workshop description:
Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard Learn. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment, or moved from one LMS to another. Whether you are a veteran of online testing or relatively new to it, Respondus will save you hours on each assessement – be it formative or summative. In this training course, you will discover how Respondus can help you create quality assessments that can be added to your LMS or stand alone. You will explore the various ways to create Respondus files, the tools that are available to you to add quality to your assessments, and the different ways you can deliver your Respondus quiz. We will show you how to install the software, create questions directly in Respondus or import an existing quiz from Word or Excel. We will show you how the integration with Blackboard works and how to release test to your students. Practical tips around online assessment will round up the training.
