Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be published directly to NS Online (D2L). This software is particularly useful when translating paper assessments into the D2L environment.

Exams are created offline using Microsoft Word (or similar word processor) by following a specific test format dictated by Respondus. Once the assessment has been properly formatted, the program will transform those questions into D2L compatible ones, upload the questions to your question library, and generate the assessment, which students can then take in the "Quizzes" tool.

Whether you are a veteran of online testing or relatively new to it, Respondus will save you hours on each project.
