This guide will provide more information about the Respondus LockDown Browser settings. 

Please pay close attention to the settings when you are preparing your Quiz inside Respondus LockDown Browser.

Settings to Pay Extra Special Attention to:

1. There are a few areas where you can choose to edit the text that a student will see. Please read the default text and click Edit Text if you wish to change it and make it more applicable for your test. 


Be sure to click Save & Close if you made any changes. 


2. Notice under Advanced Settings, there is an option to Lock students into the browser until their quiz is completed/they have submitted it for grading. This optional setting should have a default setting of "off". When set to off, students have to provide a reason before submitting the quiz.

You DO NOT have to check this box. However, if you do decide to check it you can enter a password (that you will need to communicate to students) that allows students to exit the exam early.
