Respondus LockDown Browser

Attend an Upcoming Webinar: "Instructor Training for LockDown Browser & Respondus Monitor"

This comprehensive training webinar is intended for instructors who plan to use LockDown Browser and/or Respondus Monitor with online/proctored exams. The session will include coverage of the new automated flagging system within Respondus Monitor. The webinar is 45 minutes, plus a Q&A period at the end.

Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in Canvas.  When students use LockDown Browser to access a quiz, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, access other applications, or close a quiz until it is submitted for grading.  Quizzes created for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard browsers.

Instructor Resources

Hint:  Start with a practice exam.  

Ensure your first exam using Respondus Monitor runs smoothly! Have students take an ungraded practice quiz that requires the use of LockDown Browser, before taking a graded exam.

Leave the practice quiz available for the duration of the course, with unlimited attempts, so students can check their setup from a different computer.
