Importing Content: Respondus Exams
Importing Respondus Exams
You can import exams that were created by using Respondus® software.
Important: The exams must have been created using the Respondus CMS (Course Management System) “personality” IMS QTI 1.1+ and saved as an IMS QTI XML file in zip file format. If the Respondus exam you want to import was created using a CMS personality other than IMS QTI 1.1+, you can convert the exam file to use the IMSQTI 1.1+ personality. For more information, see the Respondus documentation.
Respondus exams import as quizzes and are added to the Assessments tool. All questions in the exam are added to the Question Database tool. After an exam is imported, you can create links to it on content folders in the Course Content tool and in learning modules.
Step 1: Do one of the following:
If you are on the Manage Course screen, go to step 2.
- To navigate to the Manage Course screen, under Designer Tools, click Manage Course. The Manage Course screen appears.
Step 2: Click Import. The Content Browser pop-up window appears.
Step 3: Do one of the following:
If the zip file you want to import is on your local computer or on an accessible network drive:
- Click the My Computer icon. Your computer's file browser or the Upload Files from Your Computer screen appears.
Locate and select the zip file.
- If the zip file you want to import is in WebCT, locate and select the zip file.
The Content Import in Progress screen appears, listing details of the import in progress.
Step 4: After the content package finishes importing, if you want to view a log that contains details about the import process:
Click View Import Log. The Import Log pop-up window appears.
- When you are finished viewing the import log, click Close.
Step 5: Click Return.
The Course Content Home screen appears and the exam is added as a quiz to the Assessments tool. All questions in the exam are added to the Main category in the Question Database tool.
Note: WebCampus stores all imported files in a folder called Imported_Resources. You can view the contents of this folder in File Manager.
Step 6: To go to the quiz:
Under Course Tools, click Assessments. The Assessments screen appears, displaying all assessments in the tool.
- Locate the imported quiz and click its title.
Note: You can create links to assessments on folders in the Course Content tool and in learning modules. For more information, see Linking Items to the Course Content and Learning Module Tools.
Step 7: Ensure you review and, if necessary, edit the quiz properties.
Quiz properties define how a quiz will be delivered to Students and how results will be released to Students.
Note: If you imported an exam or a question that has the same title as an assessment or question that exists in WebCampus already, before you can edit its properties, you must edit the title and make it unique.
