Respondus 4.0 is a tool for creating and managing tests that can be published directly into Blackboard. You can create your test using Word or plain text (textedit) and import the questions into Respondus where you can add images, equations, and more into each question. Or you can create your test directly in Respondus choosing 15 different question types that are supported in Blackboard.
Placing your test in Respondus 4.0 provides a way to create a printed copy for students who are unable to take the test in Blackboard. You can also use Respondus to retrieve a test that is already in Blackboard to make edits or to print a copy.
Ball State has a campus license that is available to all faculty. To download a copy follow these steps:

on the Ball State campus. You must set this option on your Blackboard
test to utilize the feature in the testing lab.
