What is the Respondus Assessment Tool?


Respondus® is for creating and managing assessments and assessment questions, with or without ANGEL!


Even though ANGEL has a built-in assessment editor, Respondus has some great extra features:

    • Respondus questions and/or assessments can be imported into ANGEL or printed out as paper tests.
    • Existing test questions in ANGEL can be imported into Respondus for editing.
    • Respondus also accepts publisher test question banks and is a handy way to move those banks into ANGEL.
    • Free companion software called StudyMate accepts Respondus questions and automatically converts them into study activities for students: flashcards,crosswords, matching questions, and more!
    • Note: The Respondus® Lockdown Browser is not available, but ask your ANGEL Coordinator about the free and user-friendly ANGEL Secure Browser instead!)

To download Respondus (free to all TCSG instructors!), ask your ANGEL Coordinator for the username and password for the GVTC Download Website, log onto the site, and follow the instructions in the Respondus and StudyMate section.

What are StudyMate Learning Activities?

      

StudyMate® automatically converts facts, definitions and questions into learning activities, with or without ANGEL!


There are two versions of StudyMate: Author and ClassAuthor is intended for instructor-generated content, and Class is created within ANGEL and is for student-generated content.

    • Information is entered or imported in three simple formats: facts, definitions or multiple choice questions.
    • StudyMate automatically converts the information into 10 different learning activities, including flashcards, pick-a-letter, matching, fill-in-the-blank and crossword activities, and two quiz-style activities.
    • Content can be created within either version of StudyMate, or imported from Respondus, and is interchangeable between all three!
    • Free iOS and Android apps means students can learn on the go!
    • StudyMate is designed as a study tool and not a gradable lesson item.  StudyMate Class in particular can be entirely student-driven, if so desired.
