Administer online tests where students are unable to open other software or browser windows.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in Blackboard on UBlearns. When students use LockDown Browser to take a Blackboard test, they are unable to print, copy, go to other websites, access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading. Tests created for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard browsers, either. LockDown Browser functions much like a standard browser, but some options have been removed or work differently.
The “Respondus LockDown Browser Building Block” has been installed by the system administrators but it doesn’t automatically appear in your course. Follow these steps make the tool available.
The Respondus LockDown Browser™ can be used in the North Campus public computer labs, or it may be downloaded and installed on student systems.
