Respondus Lockdown Browser & Monitor
Respondus Lockdown Browser & Respondus Monitor are BW-licensed and supported tools for secure testing.  Use of these tools is OPTIONAL.

Lockdown Browser, when added to a test, prevents students from accessing any other sites, programs, or files from their device.  If needed, access to a specific software required for the test can be authorized.

Respondus Monitor can be used in conjunction with the Lockdown Browser.  It uses a student's webcam to monitor and record their activity during an exam and sends an authenticity report to you with any suspicious activity flagged.
LockDown Browser & Monitor is readily available in Canvas.  (Faculty:  If it is not visible on your navigation menu, go to Settings > Navigation tab, and move “LockDown Browser” from the hidden items to the visible items.)  Contact your Instructional Designer if you need assistance in setting up your exam.

Students need to install the Respondus software on their personal computers.  Link to download.  Note: The link to the software download is specific to BW.  Once a student downloads the software from this link, it will log them in to BW’s instance of Respondus for any/all of their courses.
