Respondus Lockdown Browser & Monitor Information

Respondus Lockdown Browser & Monitor 

Respondus LockDown BrowserTM is a customized browser that increases the security of test delivery in Canvas. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser to access an exam, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. Once an assessment is started, students are locked into it until it's submitted for grading.  Respondus Monitor builds upon the power of LockDown Browser®, and uses a student's webcam and industry-leading video analytics to prevent cheating during non-proctored exams. Monitor is appropriate for online courses where students take an exam from an off-campus location.

Faculty may participate in the Respondus Workshop course for complete instructions and details.

Respondus Lockdown Browser System Requirements 

Best Practice:  Give students a 'practice quiz' -- a low stakes or zero point quiz so they can practice using Lockdown Browser/Monitor.
