Respondus LockDown Browser Overview

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within the course management system. When students use LockDown Browser, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. Once the quiz or assignment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading.

Instructors should tell students if and when to use Respondus LockDown Browser and give specific instructions on how to use it.  Please see the video tutorials and resources on this page for additional information on this tool.
