Respondus Exam Manager - Manually Import Exams Into Canvas

The article outlines a two-part process for managing exams in Canvas using Respondus Exam Manager. In Part 1, the user is guided to open Respondus, change settings, open a file, preview, publish, and save it in the QTI XML zip file format. Part 2 instructs how to log into Canvas, navigate to the desired course, import course content, select the appropriate QTI file, and choose or create a question bank for importing. The process concludes with a note on limited support for the new quizzing tool and prompts to hit the "Import" button to finish.

Part 1: Open Respondus Exam Manager

  1. Go to Respondus. Change the "Current Personality:" to "IMS QTI".
  2. Open the Respondus file and accept any prompts to convert the file.
  3. Go to Preview & Publish. Select "Save QTI XML File".
  4. Save the file with the File Format option "QTI XML zip file using IMS Content Packaging".

Part 2: Login to Canvas
