Respondus Lockdown Browser for Students


Your course may require the use of LockDown Browser for online exams.  Download and install LockDown Browser on your laptop from this link (be sure to select your operating system on the left side of the screen if it not showing correctly):

To take an online test with Lockdown Browser, you must have an internet connection.  It is highly recommended that you close all programs, shutdown your computer and restart it in order to minimize losing your connection during your test.

Start LockDown Browser and navigate to the exam. (You won’t be able to access the exam with a standard web browser.) For additional details on using LockDown Browser, review this  Student Quick Start Guide.

Finally, when taking an online exam, follow these guidelines:

  • Turn off all mobile devices, phones, etc.
  • Clear your desk of all external materials as directed by the exam proctor
  • Remain at your desk or workstation for the duration of the test
  • LockDown Browser will prevent you from accessing other websites or applications; you will be unable to exit the test until all questions are completed and submitted
