Before you input questions for your test, you must create a file for them in Respondus. Once this file is created, you can import questions, create new questions from a template, archive the questions, and use them on another test if desired. The steps below will guide you through creating a new file or opening an existing file in Respondus.

Start tab overview

From the Respondus Start tab you can open a file, create a new file, import questions from existing text files, and change your Respondus Personality. The start menu also includes the Exam Wizard and the Archive Wizard.
