Important Notes

While exporting a quiz to Respondus is an easy solution to printing a quiz, there are some types of questions that may not print correctly. Respondus cannot properly read matching, multiple dropdowns, or file upload questions and will display as blank questions. In addition, short answer questions will show up as multiple choice questions, with only one answer selected as the correct answer. Multiple choice, multiple answer, and true/false questions will display correctly.
