Using Respondus LockDown for a Moodle Quiz
Respondus LockDown Browser is an academic integrity tool that your instructor may require you to use in order to complete a Moodle quiz or exam. This browser creates an added level of security by limiting your ability to print, access the internet and use other programs until the quiz is submitted.
Note: The use of Respondus LockDown Browser requires students to download this application to their personal computer or have access to a campus computer lab. If you have security concerns about using this application, you can find more information about Respondus in the Privacy Statement.

Note: The appearance of the pop-up will vary depending on your web browser and operating system.
Step 5: Respondus Lockdown Browser will then open on your device. If conflicting applications are running on your computer, you may be asked to close programs before proceeding. Click Yes to automatically close these programs.
Step 6: Once LockDown browser has opened, click Start Quiz to begin your assessment.
