Respondus 4.0 allows users to import questions formatted using Microsoft Word, plain text, or rich-text editors. The document must be organized in a “Standard Format” before it can be imported into Respondus 4.0. Users import question types such as, multiple choice, true-false, essay, multiple answer and fill in the blank. Multiple choice questions must be formatted using the standard format outlined below.
1. Question Numbering
Each question must begin with a question number, followed by either a period “.” or a right parentheses “)”.
2. Question Wording
The question wording must follow the question number and the period (or right parentheses). One space or one tab should be placed before the question wording.
3. Answer Choices
Each possible answer choice must begin with a letter followed by a period “.” or a right parentheses “)”.
4. Correct Answers
You can identify correct answers in two ways. You may place an asterisk (*) directly in front of the answer choice. (Do not put a space between the asterisk and the answer choice.)The second option is to place an answer key list at the end of the file. The list must begin with the word “Answers:” (Any text typed after the answer key will be ignored so no additional questions can be added).
