Respondus Exam Author™
Respondus Exam Author is a useful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard. Using Respondus Exam Author you can import an exam created in MS Word (as well as Notepad or any .TXT, .RTF, or .DOC file), and then publish directly to your Blackboard course. If you would like to create a test to be taken using the Respondus LockDown Browser, the test will need to be created using Respondus, and published to Blackboard.
Respondus LockDown Browser™
Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard, ANGEL, Desire2Learn, Moodle, and other learning systems. Students are locked into the assessment and are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications.
StudyMate helps students "master the basics" of course material through a dozen learning activities, self-assessments, and games. Students can access StudyMate activities using computers, smartphones and tablets. StudyMate also integrates seamlessly with learning systems, such as Blackboard.
Respondus Test Bank Network™
The Respondus Test Bank Network contains thousands of test banks for the leading textbooks in higher education. Test banks are compatible with Respondus applications and can be accessed for free by instructors who adopt a participating textbook.
