The Respondus Lockdown Browser is a custom web browser for taking tests in Brightspace. 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.
Students will need to download and install Respondus LockDown Browser on their own computer to use it. Repondus can be downloaded from any Respondus enabled test. Respondus is compatible with Windows and Mac computers, and can also be used on an iPad via the Respondus iPad app. Chromebooks are not supported by Respondus.
