Instructions for Instructors:
After you have written and deployed a test, you can set the test to be taken using Lockdown Browser only. In Course Tools, click on Respondus Lockdown Browser.
Instructors have the option of locking students into an exam until they have submitted it for grading, or allowing them to exit early.
This optional exam setting for LockDown Browser has a default setting of “off”. When set to off, students who leave an exam before submitting it will have to provide a reason for exiting the exam early. This reason can then be viewed by the instructor.
It is recommend letting the setting default to OFF, as there are often legitimate reasons why a student might need to leave an exam early such as losing internet connection.
- Once logged into the Blackboard course, click on Control Panel, Course Tools
link. Click Respondus LockDown Browser
- If the assessment had early exits, an orange circle will display with the number of students that exited LockDown.
- If the assessment had early exits, click the menu drop-down and select Review Early Exits.
- A listing of students that exited the assessment early will appear with the date and their reason. Once done reviewing the list, click the Close Early Exits Review button.
(The orange circle will disappear after you have review the results but the report will still be accessible.)
