The Respondus Lockdown Browser is a custom web browser for taking tests in Blackboard. Respondus Lockdown Browser prevents students from copying, pasting, taking screen captures, using instant messaging programs, accessing other applications, or accessing other websites.
This extra level of security will make faculty assessments more secure and reduce the ability of students to cheat on exams. All public labs on campus will have the Respondus LockDown browser installed. Students can also download the Respondus LockDown browser for home use as well.
