You can create questions directly in Canvas, but you can also use Respondus to turn a Word-based test into a Canvas test. Adams Center can work with you using our computer and Respondus license to convert tests if you format your test using this template (RespondusFileTemplate). (See also: Respondus User Guide). You can also check here to get your own individual license ($79 online) if you use a PC. (It does not work now with Mac, unfortunately.)
Check the tutorials below to learn how to use the application.
