How to Use the Archive Wizard to Save Exams and Surveys

The Archive Wizard in Respondus allows you to archive an exam or survey, including all media components and equations that may be associated with it. An entire “tree” of folders can also be archived. The Archive Wizard and related tasks are useful for doing routine backups, to create a ready-to-use exam/survey file that can be e-mailed to a colleague, or for organizing the “Projects” folder so that only current files are displayed.
