Install Respondus 4.0 and Publish Exam to Canvas

Information and Tips

HOWTO get a scantron-based exam uploaded to Canvas with Respondus 4.0 by Dr. David Raden

If you have exams that are written for Scantrons, your exams are probably ready to be uploaded. Here are the 3-steps required to upload questions:

  1. Exam questions needs to be in Word, RTF, or plain text.
    • Remove images and table from the file.
  2. Your questions need to be numbered followed by a period or parenthesis. (example below)
  3. Your answers need to be letters followed by a period or parenthesis. (example below)
    • Change any answers that references other answers to include both. (example below)

That is it! Your exam is ready to import into Respondus and upload to Canvas.

Add your answers to all of the questions at the end of the file. This is not required to get the exam up, but it is easier to add on your computer than once it is in Canvas. After your last question put “Answers:” then add all the answers (question number and correct letter answer) one per line. (example below)

Once it is in Canvas it will need some cleaning up and you need to add tables and figures. See below for a few things that can Improve the process.

Question Example (none of the indentation/spacing/formatting required)

1. First question

A. Answer A
B. Answers B
C. Answer C

2. Second question

A. Answer A
B. Answer B

1) Unformatted question works fine too
A) Answer A
B) Answer B
C) Answer C

Answer Example (again no formatting required) at the end of the file

Answers:
1. A
2. B

Steps to make it go more smoothly. (in order of most useful)

  1. Remove images and table from the file.
    • I had mixed success with importing images and table. It was easier to import them into Canvas separately and attach them to each question.
  2. Change any answers that references other answers
    • “All of the above” to “Sun, Air, and Water”
    • “Both A and B” to “Both transcription and translation”
  3. Add your answers to all of the questions at the end of the file.
    • After your last question put “Answers:” then add all the answers (question number and correct letter answer) one per line.
  4. Add titles to the questions in Canvas. The question numbers do not get imported into Canvas. Canvas automatically numbers your questions. Instead it uses a title for each question. Respondus will automatically add a title based on the first few words of the question.

More Information

Please note that you do not need Respondus if you already have a QTI package that you may have obtained from the publisher of the textbook or other sources. Please see this guide – ‘How do I import a quiz from a QTI package?‘.
