When we renewed our Respondus license this year, I saw that there has been an update to version 4.0. Does anyone know if this makes Respondus compatible with New Quizzes?
My best guess is...no...at least, not directly. I found these Release Notes on the Respondus website: Respondus 4.0.8.05 Patch. So, you'd still need to create your quizzes like you normally do (we create them usually in *.txt files if there isn't any basic formatting needed like bold, italics, etc.) Then, use Respondus to upload the quiz into a Canvas course. Next, migrate the quiz to New Quizzes: How do I migrate a Canvas quiz to New Quizzes?.
(This is our process for creating quizzes in Canvas: Batch Uploading Quiz Questions with Respondus.)
So far, the QTI files generated by Respondus 4.0 is not accepted by the "New Quiz" either. It is v 1.1.3. New Quiz wants a 1.2 at least.
The workaround to import the Respondus QTI into "New Quiz" Item Bank is lengthy and cumbersome, and.... you don't want to include fancy formats.
