In my Online@UT (Canvas) course site, how do I set a Quiz to use the Respondus LockDown Browser?

To set up a quiz in your Online@UT (Canvas) course site that requires students to use the Respondus LockDown Browser, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the quiz has been deployed in your course site.
  2. From the Course Navigation menu, select LockDown Browser.
  3. A list of quizzes in the course will be displayed:
    • Quizzes labeled with Required require students to use LockDown Browser.
    • Quizzes labeled with Not Required do not require students to use LockDown Browser.
  1. To change the settings, select Modify Settings from the context menu to the left of the quiz title and select the desired option. You may additionally require that LockDown Browser be used to view quiz feedback and results.
  2. Several Advanced Settings are available:
    • The first setting will prevent students from exiting the browser until the exam is completed. This is sometimes used in testing centers where a proctor can enter a password to exit an exam early.
    • The second setting will allow students to take the exam with an iPad, using the free LockDown Browser app.
    • The third setting will allow specific students to access the exam with screen reader accessibility programs. See for an additional step that’s required by the student.
    • The fourth and fifth settings allow instructors to provide students with a calculator or print function in the LockDown Browser toolbar.
    • For additional information, select the [explain] link that follows each setting.
  3. Click Save and Close to apply the settings.
