Respondus LockDown Browser + Monitor

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. NOTE: As of 8/17/2021, LockDown Browser DOES work with Chromebooks.

Respondus Monitor is a video monitoring service that works in conjunction with the Respondus LockDown Browser for exams delivered via Canvas. It serves as a deterrent to students using secondary computers, phones, calculators, textbooks, or receiving assistance from other students. After a student has taken an exam, instructors can review the report and the video to check for any suspect behavior. Respondus Monitor is suitable for low or medium-stakes exams that require student monitoring. Respondus can be used for synchronous or asynchronous exams delivered via Canvas. Students can take their exam at their convenience during the instructor-provided exam availability window.

Respondus provides a training video for Respondus LockDown Browser + Monitor (1:16:43) as well as on-going live webinars.
