Respondus 4.0

For faculty transferring quizzes from a non-Canvas format, another Respondus product is available – Respondus 4.0. Respondus 4.0 is a desktop application that assists in the conversion of existing quizzes in specially formatted Word documents to a format suitable for a Canvas quiz.

Follow these steps to download and launch Respondus 4.0:

  1. Go to UDeploy to download Respondus 4.0, then click “Respondus Setup Instructions and Installation Password.”
    Note: Respondus 4.0 is only available for Windows.
  2. Read this document to familiarize yourself with the process for preparing a Word doc to be imported as a Canvas quiz.
  3. In the Word file, put an asterisk to the left of the correct answer. See an example here.
  4. Launch Respondus 4.0 from your computer.
  5. Click Import Question Type, then select “Word File” as the Question type (.docx or .doc).
  6. Click Finish. Now you have the option to either go to Respondus Publishing Wizard to link directly to your course or to save the QTI File (quiz file).
    Note: We recommend that you save the QTI file to your device.
  7. Import the QTI File.
    • Settings > Import Content > Content type – Select QTI > Click Source to choose the QTI file from your computer.
