Administer online tests where students are unable to open other software or browser windows.

About Respondus Lockdown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser™ adds security within the UBlearns testing environment. This browser creates an on line environment in which students cannot visit other sites, print, copy, or access other applications. Students are locked into an assessment until it is submitted for grading.

Use of the Respondus LockDown Browser™ does not require that instructors re-create existing tests, but it does require that existing tests be published using Respondus authoring software.

New tests can be created in UBlearns or in Respondus. What is important to note is that once a test has been created, it must be published using Respondus authoring software in order to utilize Respondus LockDown Browser™.

Respondus LockDown Browser Campus Availability

The Respondus LockDown Browser™ can be used in the North Campus public computer labs, or it may be downloaded and installed on student systems.
