Respondus 4

Our institution has obtained a campus-wide license for Respondus 4.0. Respondus 4.0 is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be published directly to our LMS or printed for paper-based exams. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment and can also be moved from one LMS to another. For more details, visit

Our license also permits you to install a copy of Respondus 4.0 on a personal computer. However, you are not permitted to provide the Respondus 4.0 software or the password information to anyone who is not affiliated with our institution. Such an action is a violation of our licensing agreement with Respondus and is also illegal.

You can obtain a copy of the Respondus 4.0 software from the JHU mySoftware Catalog
