Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus Lockdown Browser creates a restricted test taking environment. The Respondus LockDown Browser does not allow other windows to be opened during the quiz and helps prevent cheating. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. This is particularly helpful for tests/exams in supervised classrooms or lab environments.

Additionally, LockDown Browser integrates with the Canvas Learning Management System. Faculty can create quizzes that can only be accessed using LockDown Browser. For more information about implementing, using, installing, and finding LockDown Browser, please consult the documentation below:
