When students attempt to take a LockDown Browser required assessment from a standard web browser (e.g., Chrome, Firefox, or Safari), they will be directed to install it on their device. If the LockDown Browser software is already installed, the following guide will walk through the steps to use it.
It is important to save work and close all programs, as Respondus LockDown Browser requires all other applications to be closed. It will force close all programs on launch and unsaved work will be lost.
Additionally, disconnect any USB devices such as mobile devices or tablets, as these will interfere with LockDown Browser; USB mouses will not interfere with LockDown Browser.
Select the Launchpad (rocketship) icon from the dock. Locate LockDown Browser and double-click to open the application.
If LockDown Browser detects any programs or background processes still running, select Close Process for each program or background process.
Note: If there is any unsaved work in another open program, select Exit LockDown Browser to exit the browser and save work first.
Using the Loyola Login link, login to Sakai. The Sakai login process in LockDown Browser is the same as for any other web browser (e.g., Chrome, Firefox).
Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the Tool Menu.
When using Respondus LockDown Browser, it is very important to access tests directly in the Tests & Quizzes tool. Do not access the test from a link in Announcements, Lessons, etc.
For instructions on taking a test, please refer to How do I submit an assessment (i.e. test or quiz)?
