How Do I Enable Respondus LockDown Browser for an Assessment?


Enabling Respondus LockDown Browser on a test requires modifying the settings of that test. The settings for an assessment are complex and include many options besides LockDown Browser. Only the settings required for LockDown Browser are addressed in this resource.

To modify other necessary assessment settings, see How do I view and modify the settings of an assessment?

Access the Tests & Quizzes Tool.

In the target Sakai course, select Tests & Quizzes from the Tool Menu.

Edit the Test Settings.

Select Settings.

  1. Select the Actions drop-down menu.
  2. From the menu, choose Settings.

Warning: Though you can edit a published copy of an assessment, this is not recommended because modifying settings for a test in progress may cause the loss of student data.

The LockDown Browser settings are located in the Settings section Availability and Submissions. Select the bar to expand Availability and Submissions.

Select Ensure students take exams from specific location.

Within the Availability and Submissions settings, expand the option Ensure students take exams from specific location.

Select Respondus LockDown Browser.

Select the radio button next to the option Respondus LockDown Browser.

Note: The Exit password (optional) is intended for use in face-to-face proctoring environments that are not applicable to online testing. We recommend that you leave this field blank.
