Respondus Lockdown Browser and Respondus Monitor

Overview

Are you looking for a way to prevent students taking an online Canvas quiz from accessing any outside websites, printing, copying or accessing other applications  during the quiz ?   If yes, then consider requiring students to use the Respondus LockDown Browser, when taking an online exam using Canvas Quizzes.

What you need to know about the integration:

  • Lockdown Browser can be used on Windows, Mac and iPad devices. Note: Lockdown browser doesn’t run on a Chromebook.
  • You set up Lockdown Browser as the required browser for a Canvas quiz with a few clicks from within Canvas.
  • Students need to download  and install Lockdown Browser, using Endicott specific URLs, on their device to take the Canvas quiz.

Respondus Monitor 

Respondus Monitor is a fully automated proctoring solution that enables students to take online exams at any time of the day or night, without pre-scheduling.

Students use a webcam to record themselves during an exam. A “startup sequence” guides them through requirements selected by the instructor, such as showing identification or making a short video of the exam environment. Only the instructor can review video recordings and the results of the proctoring session.

Powerful analytics are used to detect suspicious behaviors during an exam session. Video segments with potential exam violations are flagged for the instructor, with an overall risk level assigned to the exam session.
