McGraw-Hill Higher Education has announced an alliance with Respondus that will result in hundreds of McGraw-Hill Higher Education question banks being available from the Respondus Test Bank Network. Faculty who adopt a participating textbook for their course will be able to obtain the Respondus-formatted question banks at no charge.
Faculty can request a McGraw-Hill question bank by going to http://www.respondus.com/testbank and submitting the request form. Once the request is validated by McGraw-Hill staff, the instructor will receive an email containing the file code and password needed to download the question bank with their Respondus or StudyMate software.
Respondus-formatted test banks make it easy for instructors who use Respondus 3.5 to create tests and then publish them to Blackboard, WebCT, ANGEL, eCollege and other e-learning platforms. The same files can be downloaded and used with StudyMate, allowing fast creation of interactive Flash activities, games and self-assessments.
The demonstration movie “Downloading Publisher Test Banks” provides a brief overview of the Respondus Test Bank Network and shows how to download a publisher question bank using Respondus or StudyMate.
