Exam Creation (Respondus)

Respondus is a powerful application for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard. Respondus includes time-saving features such as a Windows-style editor, spell checking, a mathematical equation editor, multimedia support, one-click archiving of exam, the ability to move an exam from one eLearning system to another, and so much more.

Workstation Installation and Licensing

Faculty can install Respondus on their workstations as well as home computers.

Purdue University has obtained a campus-wide license for Respondus software.  Faculty and staff may install Respondus on their home or office computer.  For faculty and staff wishing to have Respondus installed on their work computers, please contact your local IT support group for assistance in installing the program. Respondus is available for Windows only; there is no Mac version available.

To request Respondus software, please email tlt-consulting@purdue.edu with your request.

Please note that you may not share the Respondus installation file and license information with anyone who is not affiliated with Purdue.  Such an action is a violation of our licensing agreement with Respondus, and is also illegal.

After installing Respondus, the program may search for updates. Please allow the program to download and install any updates.
