Respondus 4.0 Campus-W­ide

Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide is a program that allows instructors to author and publish quizzes to Canvas as well as import quizzes that are currently posted in Canvas. It is not mandatory to use Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide. Tests can be created within Canvas without use of this software. In all cases, we recommend that you maintain a backup copy of any tests outside of the learning management system. 

You can use Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide to import a copy of an online quiz from Canvas, in order to create a digital copy of the quiz outside of the learning management system. For example, you may be asked to provide a digital copy of a test for the Test Centre to accommodate students with disabilities.

Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide also allows you to publish a large number of test questions created outside of Canvas to a course in Canvas.

Getting Started

Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide is installed on most instructor computers at Ontario Tech. You can search for it in the Windows Start menu on your computer. Note that Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide is not the same as Respondus LockDown Browser.

It is important to be aware that it can take some time to configure Respondus 4.0 Campus-Wide to connect to Canvas the first time you use it or after a software refresh. See the Help and Resources section below for more information on how to do this.
