You're welcome!!
Dale Glaser

when you schedule a meeting you can enable the record option as a default
Daniel Lin

Can I use Respondus Lockdown Browser but allow them to use Excel?
Deon Kula
01:35:47
Yes - but it isn't easy
Deon Kula
01:35:56
Yes
Deon Kula
01:36:05
Come see me
Daniel Lin
01:36:10
Ok
Daniel Lin
01:36:13
Thanks! Deon
Tammy Dwyer
01:36:18
Does Respondus work on Mac?
Deon Kula
01:36:40
Respondus Lockdown Browser does work on mac and monitor too
Deon Kula
01:36:45
But not Respondus 4.0
Deon Kula
01:36:49
Need a PC
Kate Boersma
01:40:20
So all of my students need to have PCs in order for me to use Responds 4.0?
crbfralick
01:42:19
I have a Pixelbook. Will that be a problem in setting up my exam in Respondus 4.0?
Daniel Lin
01:44:24
Just to clarify, using Respondus to create tests is just the same as creating tests on BB directly, right? In other words, just choose whichever is easier/more familiar, right?
shaghayegh
01:47:47
What do you mean by saying we need to “format” the test if we want ldc to upload it?
Ernest Kim
01:47:59
can we upload an "essay" type of exam with diagrams like he file attached, without lock-down browser?
Rita Alipour
01:48:46
Do you include the answer?
Rita Alipour
01:48:56
Thank you!
Kate Boersma
01:49:02
How do we include figures or tables?
crbfralick
01:49:31
Can you show one more time how you got to that PDF on the Respondus page?
Kate Boersma
01:50:16
Can they freehand draw an answer with their cursor on a blackboard exam?
crbfralick
01:50:19
Perfect, thank you!
Kate Boersma
01:50:23
Like for figures
Amy Bergen Zerofski
01:50:30
can you show how to upload something into an exam? I need to put a pdf in
Kate Boersma
01:51:01
awesome, thanks
zella
01:51:09
why can't why we just upload exam into blackboard and not go through respondus 4.0
Ernest Kim
01:51:21
Perfect! Thank you for he answer using file Response
michellekennedy
01:51:42
Will the instructions on how to format an exam if I have a Mac be sent as well?
Ashley Corrigan Steffey
01:51:56
What version of Blackboard are we currently using? I can’t find it. I’m looking to use publisher resources and need to know the version.
michellekennedy
01:52:22
I saw the example test…wanted to see how to format a simple multiple choice/TF test.
zella
01:52:28
Thank you!
ayeung
01:52:28
Can blackboard record student’s aural response?
Dale Glaser
01:52:35
in BB when creating an exam, for any item with an image, I had to save the graphics/tables as a JPEG file and then insert it.....is that similar to Respondus?
Ernest Kim
01:52:43
Zella: I'm seriously considering classifying my written eams as an "Assignment" with set start and stop times. Students will have to upload their pdf work
Ernest Kim
01:52:59
I'll give them an extra 5-10 minutes per exam
michellekennedy
01:53:00
Great thank you!! I have to pop off but please send to michellekennedy@sandiego.edu
michellekennedy
01:53:03
Thank you!
Wenli Xiao
01:53:10
After you design the exam, how can you see the student version to see if it is properly done?
paul kemp
01:53:24
is the exam timed?
zella
01:53:24
Great idea Ernie!
Abimbola Esan
01:53:48
Exam can be timed
Kimberly Krieg
01:53:52
Are there different instructions available if we have Blackboard Ultra?
paul kemp
01:54:05
thank you
mwoods
01:54:08
Do we have to supply answers to short answer questions on Blackboard, or can I simply create short answer questions that I can grade myself?
Deon
01:54:22
I don't believe they have been created yet, but we will work on that.
Ernest Kim
01:55:11
Yes, true. Exams can be timed. My issue is that students will have to use diagrams and equations written by them. I am uncertain how exams of that type can be efficiently administered online.
Deon
01:55:13
You would make short answer and then grade themselves.
Deon
01:55:51
You can upload graphics to blackboard - as questions or students can upload graphics as answers
Deon
01:56:27
For Blackboard Ultra I'm told everything is the same once you click on the Zoom link
Ernest Kim
01:56:37
The most efficient way that I've tried is to run the exam as a timed assignment and allow them to upload the whole thing
Deon
01:57:25
That's one way! Another would be to make all the M/C one test (automatically graded) and then leave essay for you to grade at your convenience
SESFAHANI
01:58:21
When questions are randomized and they come from a pool of questions, what happens if I give multiple attempts? Do they see the same questions? Or they see a different set of questions on the second attempt?
miguelm
01:59:46
Can you set different time amounts for different students?
Deon
02:00:06
Yes.
usdlab
02:00:07
Can we do listening comprehension exam?
Deon
02:00:23
That part is coming up
Deon
02:00:40
Listening Comprehension - I do no know
ayeung
02:00:59
Can you give individual student different length of time - some students have received permission to have longer time for test.
Truc Ngo
02:01:05
what happens when students lose connection or computer glitch during the exam? If we uncheck "force completion", and the exam is timed, when the student log back in, can they still continue with the exam if there is still time left for the exam?
Deon
02:01:22
Yes, you most definitely can do that.
Abimbola Esan
02:02:15
Listening Comprehension: You could upload an audio file for your students to listen to, then answer the question. You have to link the audio file in the question area.
Deon
02:02:17
See tjat test availablity exceptions? thats where you do it
Wenli Xiao
02:02:18
What if I have 3 sessions? They are supposed to have the exam at three different time slots
Abimbola Esan
02:02:38
I know language dept. that have done that before.
Deon
02:02:57
Yes, you can do that (audio comp). You can upload audio files (again as both tests and answers)
usdlab
02:03:01
why we need the password? I thought only students who take the course can see the tests.
Dale Glaser
02:04:08
If I make a test available today (3/17) but I set the display dates/times for the two hour exam for tomorrow (3/18) between 9 - 11 am, can I assume students can't start the exam until tomorrow morning?
Deon
02:04:11
You dont need a password - only if you want one
Deon
02:04:25
Yes, that would be safe to assume
Abimbola Esan
02:04:27
yes, only students in the course see the test. password is optional. some instructor had provided passwords to make students attend class.
Deon
02:04:45
but you said the key thing - it has to be AVAILABLE for it to display
Abimbola Esan
02:04:49
Dale: that is correct
Deon
02:05:04
If you make the Available NO, it will never display
mwoods
02:06:37
Is there a way to give each student specific comments on each of their short answer questions?
Deon
02:06:53
Yes. Easy to do.
Wenli Xiao
02:07:45
What if the students want to ask me questions about the exam?
Abimbola Esan
02:08:03
They will need to email you
Wenli Xiao
02:08:17
Thanks!
ayeung
02:08:23
is there anyway a student may be able record the test and pass the questions to other students?
Kate Boersma
02:08:52
They can just take a screenshot, right?
SESFAHANI
02:09:19
They can take photos with their cellphone and share them with others
Amy Bergen Zerofski
02:09:37
After I've already uploaded the test, to make answers sort randomly, do I need to edit each question individually?
Deon
02:10:12
No. There is a setting for that.
Deon
02:10:32
Just be careful using "all of the above" and "a and b are correct"
Deon
02:10:59
Yes, they can take pics with their phones - we can only do so much! lol
Deon
02:11:37
Or they may have posters IN FRONT of them!
Karen Teel
02:12:03
If we use respondus monitor, we could spend 30 hours watching the video of each student taking the exam and then punish them for taking photos! That would be a great way to spend all our free time!
SESFAHANI
02:13:05
Respondus marks any unusual behavior for you. You don't have to watch all the videos. Although, it sometimes misses marking some things that it should.
Deon
02:13:06
If you use Respondus Monitor it will tag anything suspicous for you.
Karen Teel
02:13:15
There's no way to force "all of the above" to be the last choice?
zella
02:13:23
If I want students to upload their solutions (using File Response), can they still use Respondus Monitor? Will Lockdown Browser allow them to upload their files?
Deon
02:13:25
So if they bend down at 33minutes, it will alert you on that.
Karen Teel
02:13:33
Cool
Deon
02:13:37
No way to force All of the above
Deon
02:13:49
can say "all answers are correct"
Karen Teel
02:14:40
I also love "both A and B" and "neither A nor B" but those have to come last also
SESFAHANI
02:15:16
I know at UCSD they had their final exams this week and some profs were using some video-recording proctoring tool and students were all very upset and complaining. They ended up not using it.
Deon
02:15:40
Good to know. Nothing like experience.
Dale Glaser
02:16:26
I've talked to quite a few instructors who have used the lockdown browser & monitor and no longer do so....
Karen Teel
02:16:34
Would they object to being required to be logged into a zoom session while taking the exam?
Deon
02:16:50
Thats a good solution!
Veronica Galvan
02:16:57
Dale, why not?
Deon
02:17:22
But there you are spending all your time watchin them. You can have the whole class log in to a zoom session and watch them all.
Karen Teel
02:17:41
That's what happens when I proctor in person anyway
Karen Teel
02:17:47
I just watch them
Deon
02:17:52
True.
Deon
02:18:16
IF you have students taking exams on an iPad, you have to check the box to allow that
SESFAHANI
02:18:33
I've used Respondus lockdown browser and monitor before for an online course and it was actually pretty good. But, I am very concerned that our students at USD won't like it when it's being introduced to them like this in the middle of the semester.
Karen Teel
02:18:38
Does the lockdown browser work on ipad?
Dale Glaser
02:18:38
1) If students really want to cheat they will find a way (i.e, they view it as a challenge as opposed to intimidating!); 2) one prof who used it found the distribution of scores was not markedly different when using it vs not); 3) it can be a technological pain when all does not flow well for a timed test
Deon
02:18:56
Lockdown browser works on ipad
Veronica Galvan
02:19:05
Dale, thanks! :)
Karen Teel
02:19:08
Even if they make a chart and put it in front of themselves, their info may be bad!
Deon
02:19:58
Faculty who want to use Respondus Monitor should first check with their Dean because some students may not be able to deploy cameras. so this may be an academic policy issue.
zella
02:20:05
If we use Respondus 4.0 to upload exams, do students need to download respondus 4.0 as well?
usdlab
02:20:40
where is the USD’s Honor Code, we can copy?
Dale Glaser
02:20:42
re: honor code!....yes yes yes!....I have an exam I"m giving at UCSD tomorrow and I crafted an integrity pledge that all students have to respond via email their adherence....
Deon
02:20:59
No. REspondus 4.0 is only used to UPLOAD the exam to bb
Deon
02:21:25
I'll have to check where USD Honor Code is
Dale Glaser
02:22:00
is it easy to import BB exam for future use?
Abimbola Esan
02:22:28
importing from a previous course?
Deon
02:22:32
Yes
paul kemp
02:22:39
Academic Integrity also has a one sentence that says I have neither received nor given assistance on this exam
zella
02:23:05
As an FYI, I gave the students the option to take their midterms online. I emailed their exams and they had to submit it back within a specified time and told them they would lose points if it didn't come back on time. I had them affirm that they would not cheat. Anyway, I did not see any cheating. I was very impressed!
Karen Teel
02:23:09
Can the honor code question be worth zero points?
Abimbola Esan
02:23:17
yes it can
Deon
02:23:19
You can upload an exam and not make a link to it but its there for future use
Deon
02:23:32
You can make a question with zero points - so yes
shaghayegh
02:24:20
Thank you Ashley!
Kate Boersma
02:24:27
Same, Dale!!
Kate Boersma
02:24:36
Every single question!
Kate Boersma
02:24:42
for biostatistics
Rita Alipour
02:25:31
How are the test banks uploaded in order to create pools? Is that something you can help with?
Deon
02:26:58
Yep. You can upload questions into pool too. Then you can specify a certain number from each "pool" for the final or something. Each one can be different questions too..
Rita Alipour
02:27:48
Can you choose the questions in the pool? Not all are good
Deon
02:28:30
No but you can get rid of the bad ones.
Truc Ngo
02:28:40
Did Ashley mean to share her screen?
Rita Alipour
02:28:46
Got it!
Zeynep Kuru
02:31:27
I have a Mac and just want to check that, we can have short answer and essay questions in an exam, create that exam through blackboard and able to use respondus browser lockdown and monitor??
Deon
02:31:41
That will work!
Zeynep Kuru
02:32:06
Thanks Deon
Deon
02:32:06
Lockdown monitor works on Mac and so does all the testing featuress
Rita Alipour
02:32:09
Thank you!
Deon
02:32:14
My pleasure!
Wenli Xiao
02:32:35
Prohibit Backtracking, if we don’t do this, can students be able to change their answers to earlier questions?
