LockDown Browser

What is Respondus LockDown Browser?

LockDown Browser is a custom browser that restricts the testing environment in WebCampus. When students complete a test using LockDown Browser, they are unable to print, copy, go to other websites, access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading. Students will not be able to access LockDown Browser enabled tests with other standard browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). 

Suggested Best Practice: We recommended that you create a practice, ungraded, test that requires LockDown Browser. Students should be instructed to complete this practice test using LockDown Browser on the device/machine they plan on using to complete their exams. This will ensure that LockDown Browser is installed properly on the student's computer or device.
