How do I use the Respondus Canvas Personality to upload a quiz directly to my course?

You will learn how to use the Respondus Canvas Personality to upload your Respondus test bank or exam to your course in Canvas (this guide is for uploading to a single course).

This procedure will create a Classic Quiz in your course in Canvas.

Once an exam or survey is created in Respondus, the Preview + Publish menu lets you determine what to do with the file. When the questions are ready to be uploaded, the Publish task connects Respondus to the LMS server and transfers the exam or survey to it.

1. After opening your Respondus file, make sure that Canvas is selected for your Current Personality.
