Online test-taking in IU’s Canvas learning management system just got a lot more secure. The university is currently piloting Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor software on all campuses. These tools lock down the testing environment and increase accountability.
When students use Respondus LockDown Browser to access a quiz, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications — they’re locked into a quiz until they submit it for grading.
Respondus Monitor visually identifies students for non-proctored, online exams. Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving Canvas.
