Viterbo University licenses LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor. These applications are used to deter cheating during online exams.
LockDown Browser prevents students from printing, copying, going to different URLs or accessing other applications during an online exam. It’s ideal for use in testing centers and proctored environments.
Respondus Monitor enhances LockDown Browser by using a student’s webcam to record the assessment session. This enables online exams to be taken in non-proctored environments and deters students from accessing other resources during an exam (such as a phone, a second computer, etc.). It also ensures the right student is taking the exam, and that the student isn’t getting help from others.
Lockdown Browser/Monitor now has an additional option: remote proctoring. The new Instructor Live Proctoring option enables instructors to use a video conferencing system (Zoom or Microsoft Teams) for live, remote testing. LockDown Browser prevents cheating on the computer or device itself, while the instructor watches students via video conferencing. This mode of testing is recommended for small, synchronous classes where instructors can effectively manage and observe students during the exam. Note that it is not ideal for one-on-one proctoring.
