How to set up Respondus Lockdown Browser to prevent cheating during test taking

Hello My name is Frank Newman. Welcome to this tutorial on how to use Respondus Lockdown Browser.

As its name suggests, Respondus Lockdown browser locks down the testing environment within Blackboard so that students are unable to copy, print, access other applications, or visit other websites during an online exam. University of Houston testing center requires that all exams hosted at their labs enable Respondus Lockdown Browser. For self-administrated online tests, it can also help prevent cheating during exam. (Note: show the downloading/instruction page for this paragraph)

You will need to deploy a test first, then on the Control Panel, under Course Tools, click Respondus Lockdown Browser. You will see all Blackboard tests displayed. Locate the test you want o lock down, click the drop down menu to the left and then select Modify Settings. Select “Require Respondus LockDown Browser for this exam” and then click Save and Close. When you see the test marked with Required, that means the lockdown browser was successfully added.

Thank you for watching the video.
