Respondus is a software application used to create and manage quizzes, self-tests, and surveys that can be published directly into Webcourses@UCF. This software also makes it easier to manage assessments. Even though Respondus is native to Windows, Mac users can run Respondus using virtualization software (e.g., VMware or Parallels) or Bootcamp. For more information about Respondus, visit the Respondus website.

Publishing to New Quizzes

New Quizzes in Webcourses@UCF (Canvas) requires new APIs and web services to integrate with Respondus 4.0 and other external applications. Once Canvas fully develops the necessary APIs and web services, Respondus Product Management plans to support New Quizzes with Respondus 4.0.

Meanwhile, faculty should continue to publish to Classic Quizzes then migrate the quizzes into New Quizzes in the course with the utility provided by Canvas.
