Respondus at MSU

MSU recently purchased a campus-wide subscription to Respondus 4.0. Respondus is a Windows-based exam management/authoring tool that can be used with D2L to provide additional features for creating and managing online quizzes.

Use Respondus to: 

  • convert Word docs or other text-based exams to D2L online quizzes,
  • download quizzes from D2L for test bank management,
  • add automatted question titles using a stem (e.g., chapt1-01, chapt2-02, etc.),
  • print professionally formatted copies of exams with optional answer keys.

Respondus can also be used to move exams from one LMS to another and to import test banks from participating publishers through its Test Bank Network.

MSU instructors can contact the DLS Help Desk to request access to the Respondus Community where they will receive more information about Respondus and how to download the software. The campus-wide subscription does not include the LockDown Browser, Monitor, or StudyMate.
