Publisher Test Banks

Publisher Test Banks

Publisher test banks are now available in Respondus format and more are “forthcoming.” There is NO cost to obtain the Respondus-formatted test banks.

Requesting a Test Bank

Faculty who adopt a participating publisher textbook can obtain the Respondus-formatted test bank by following three easy steps:

  1. Go to Respondus and search for the textbook.
  2. Fill out the adoption request form and submit it.
  3. Once the publisher has authenticated the request, you will receive an e-mail that contains the information needed to download the test bank using your Respondus software.

Downloading the Test Bank

The e-mail you receive from the publisher will include the file code and password needed to download the Respondus-formatted test bank.

  1. Start your Respondus software.
  2. Select Open, and click the Download Test Bank button.
  3. Enter the information the publisher provided to you. The test bank will download directly to your Respondus Projects folder.

Test Bank Not Available

If the test bank for your textbook is not available (or forthcoming), you may submit a request.

  1. Search Respondus Testbank.
  2. Select the Suggest a Test Bank link and submit the form.
  3. This information is passed along to publishers to help them decide which test banks they should make available in Respondus format. It may also help to contact the publisher directly and let them know that you’d like a particular test bank in Respondus format.

Some publishers prefer to distribute their Respondus-formatted test banks using different methods. Ask your publisher representative whether their test banks are indeed available in Respondus format. Tell your representative that UCF uses Instructure Canvas.
