When you change your BearPass Password, you will need to update your settings in Exam Author. You'll get a gentle reminder in the form of an error message when you try to use the Exam Author after changing your password.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Click on the Preview & Publish tab, and select Update Settings from the left menu pane.
  2. From the Choose Server pull-down, select Add New Server.
  3. Select No, I want to enter the server settings manually.
  4. Follow the directions on the menu:
    1. Enter the URL address of MSU Bb login page
    2. Enter the URL address of your course
  5. Enter a name for the server in the Server Name box (you can use any name) and be sure the Version is selected to 7.x-9x.
  6. Press the Extract button  – this will populate the required network information.
  7. Respondus populates the User name and Password, but the Password must be re-typed, since it populates the “old” stored password.
  8. Select the Remember my User Name and Password box.
  9. Click OK.
