Respondus Lockdown Browser (for students)
Respondus Lockdown Browser
Instructors occasionally request that students take tests and quizzes from a browser called Respondus Lockdown Browser. This application must be installed from the Canvas Quiz tool and launched from the student's desktop in order to start the quiz.
When students use the LockDown Browser to access a quiz, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. Once a quiz is started, students are locked into it until it's submitted for grading.
