Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Require Respondus LockDown Browser for Quizzes
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2.
Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser which ensures a student’s desktop can only access the quiz. It is based on the same system components and settings that make up Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Mac) browsers already installed on computers. Respondus LockDown Browser is both Windows and Macintosh compatible.
When enabled for a quiz, the student receives a prompt to download the Respondus LockDown Browser application and install it before they can access the quiz. When the student then begins taking the quiz, the student is locked into the quiz until it is submitted for grading.
Respondus LockDown Browser prevents the student from:
- Opening additional browser windows
- Using other browsers
- Accessing another website
- Opening additional applications or files
- Using a printer
