Administer online tests where students are unable to open other
software or browser windows.
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
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™.
The Respondus LockDown Browser™ can be used in the North
Campus public computer labs, or it may be downloaded and
installed on student systems.
