Pearson Education Partners with Respondus

Pearson Education is partnering with Respondus to distribute Respondus-formatted test banks through the Respondus Test Bank Network. The partnership will include test banks from Pearson Prentice Hall, Pearson Longman, Pearson Addison-Wesley, Pearson Allyn & Bacon, and Pearson Benjamin Cummings.

Some Pearson Education test banks will be immediately available in Respondus format, with substantially more being added in the latter half of 2004 and early 2005. Over 100 test banks are expected to be available through the Respondus Test Bank Network within the first year.

Instructors who adopt a participating Pearson Education textbook will be able to obtain Respondus-formatted test banks using these steps:

1. At the Respondus website ( select the "Respondus Test Bank Network" link.

2. Search for the textbook being used and submit a request for the Respondus-formatted test bank.

3) After the request is validated by Pearson Education, the instructor will receive an e-mail that contains the information needed to download the test bank using the Respondus software.

4) To download the test bank, the instructor will start the Respondus software, select the "Open" task, click "Download Test Bank," and then enter the information provided by the publisher.

The final step of this process is shown in the demo movie titled "Downloading a Publisher Test Bank" that is available in the Respondus Demo Library:
