Respondus Monitor is a new add-on to Respondus LockDown Browser that further enhances test security and integrity. LockDown Browser prevents students from accessing other websites or applications; rendering students unable to exit the test until all questions are completed and submitted.
On top of the requirement of using Respondus LockDown Browser to take an exam, at the click of a button, students are met with the requirement to use a webcam. Why is this necessary? Respondus Monitor uses webcam and video technology to protect the integrity of online exams. It works seamlessly with Canvas enabling instructors and students to stay within the learning system at all times.
As an instructor, you may require a Startup Sequence to follow before taking the quiz, these include:
- Student photo and ID: show your student ID to the webcam and take a picture
- Environment Check: Turn your computer with your webcam to capture your surroundings
- Additional Instructions: Your instructor may include additional instructions before taking the quiz
