Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within MyLearningSpace. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading. (Supports Windows and Mac OS X 10.3.9+.)

Laurier has a institutional license for LockDown Browser. It can be enabled in any quiz within MyLearningSpace by checking off the appropriate box on the 'Properties' tab of your quiz.

The browser can be downloaded from here:
