What is Respondus LockDown Browser?

Respondus LockDown Browser is a locked browser for taking assessments (i.e. tests & quizzes) in Sakai. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a Sakai test requires that LockDown Browser be used, you will not be able to take the test with a standard web browser.

LockDown Browser should only be used for taking Sakai tests or quizzes that your Instructor has set to require it.

System Requirements

Students need a computer with Windows 10 or Mac OS X 10.10 or higher to install and use LockDown Browser.

Chromebooks and Mobile devices (i.e. smartphones and tablets) are presently not compatible with LockDown Browser.
