Any of the settings below will result in an error message when accessing the LockDown Browser tab in Quizzes:
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in Brightspace. When students use LockDown Browser to take a 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 using standard browsers.
Students must launch LockDown Browser from the quiz in Brightspace. They cannot open LockDown Browser first and navigate to Brightspace.
The link below, LockDown Browser Installer for Windows and Mac (includes Respondus Monitor), is the only link that should be given to students to download LockDown Browser. The installers are preconfigured to work with Brightspace.
