Respondus LockDown Browser prevents students from printing, copying, going to different URLs or accessing other applications during an online exam. It’s ideal for use in testing centers and proctored environments.
Respondus Monitor enhances LockDown Browser by using a student’s webcam to record the assessment session. This enables online exams to be taken in non-proctored environments and deters students from accessing other resources during an exam (such as a phone, a second computer, etc.). It also ensures the right student is taking the exam, and that the student isn’t getting help from others
New Quizzes Information: Respondus is notable because, as of now, it is the only monitoring solution that functions with New Quizzes. However, until Canvas releases the code for New Quizzes to outside developers, that functionality can be unstable. If you are wanting to use Lockdown Browser for a Quiz, it is recommended then that you use a Classic Quiz rather than a New Quiz. If you have any questions regarding this, contact Blake in the CTL.
Further resources for Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitcan be found on the Respondus Overview and Resource page.
Each installation of the LockDown Browser is associated with a particular institution. If you open Respondus LockDown Browser and find that it opens to a Learning Management System (Canvas or Blackboard for example) that is not Marian's, then you will need to download and install Marian's version of LDB following the instructions below. This is most common if you have used LDB with a different school in the past and still have their install on your computer.
First verify that your computer meets the following requirements:
Respondus 4.0 is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Canvas. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment, and imported into Canvas.
Respondus 4.0 is available for any faculty or staff member to use on their own computer. Please contact the CTL for instructions.
