Wiley Joins the Respondus Test Bank Network

John Wiley & Sons is the latest publisher to join the Respondus Test Bank Network.

Founded in 1807, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. is long established as a leading publisher of science, engineering and business publications, among many other subject areas. Wiley Australia has already been a member of the Respondus Test Bank Network and Wiley Europe plans to begin offering question banks through this system during 2009.

Instructors who adopt a participating textbook can request a question bank by going to and submitting a request form. Once the request is authenticated by staff at Wiley, the instructor will receive an email containing a file code and password. The instructor can then download the test bank using their Respondus 3.5 or StudyMate Author software.

Respondus-formatted question banks make it easy for instructors using Respondus 3.5 to create tests and then publish them to Blackboard, ANGEL, Desire2Learn, eCollege, and other learning platforms that support the IMS QTI 1.x standard. Respondus-formatted files can also be downloaded and used with StudyMate Author, allowing faculty to create interactive Flash activities, games and self-assessments from the same resources.

Some of the Respondus-formatted question banks that will be available in Spring 2009 from Wiley include:

"Contemporary Business 13e" by Boone/Kurtz
"Physics, 8e" by Cutnell
"Psychology in Action, 9e" by Huffman
"Intermediate Accounting, 13e" by Kieso
"Financial Accounting, 5e" by Kimmel
"Introduction to the Human Body, 8e" by Tortora
"Accounting Principles, 9e" by Weygandt

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.

Respondus-formatted question banks are available for over 2,000 of the leading textbooks in higher education. For more information, visit the Respondus Test Bank Network.
