Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is a customized web browser that increases the security of online testing in Blackboard. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser to access a test, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, access other applications, or close a test or quiz until it is submitted for grading. Respondus LockDown Browser works much like a standard browser, but many options have been removed or work differently. Once a test has started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading.

Bypassing Respondus LockDown Browser

Although, the most common accessibility technologies, such as JAWS are allowed by the LockDown Browser, certain accessibility technologies might not be compatible with Respondus LockDown Browser. In those situations it is necessary to allow the student to bypass the LockDown Browser.

Allowing Printing & Calculators with Respondus LockDown Browser

When a student uses Respondus LockDown Browser by default, the calculator and print function on the computer cannot be accessed during the online test. To allow access to the calculator and print function there are text short-codes that can be added to the test. This feature is available with the Windows and Macintosh versions of Respondus LockDown Browser.
