Canvas exam setup

Are you interested in converting a paper/pencil exam into an online one? If so, we can help.

Using  a tool called Respondus, Scoring Services can convert your Word version of a test into a file you may upload to your Canvas course. Then you can release your test to students, and as they submit their answers, Canvas will automatically grade the tests, and add scores to your Canvas grade book.

Begin the process by submitting a request for this service.

The following question formats can be accommodated:

  • Multiple Choice / True or False: one correct answer among two or more answer choices
  • Multiple Response: more than one correct answer among multiple answer choices
  • Fill in the Blank

This example of a workable Word document may help.

Instructor exams must be sent at least one week in advance of the exam's administration date. Like exam scoring, this is an inexpensive, but fee-based service, payable by your department. Please discuss this with your department chair and/or bookkeeper so they may facilitate payment.
