What is Respondus?

Respondus logo
  • Respondus 4.0 is a software tool for creating and managing exams and test items.
  • The exams and test items can be published directly to Canvas or printed to file or paper.
  • Test items can be created offline using familiar word processing software such as MS Word and then imported into Respondus.
  • Respondus can then export the test items in a variety of formats for uploading to Canvas using its Publish function.
  • Respondus can also create a link directly to the Cal State Fullerton Canvas server, called a “personality”, allowing direct upload of an exam to your course in Canvas.
