Online Proctoring Tools


Respondus Monitor: 

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.  

How to Use It: 



Instructors:  NOTE:   This tool is reserved for online classes only.   

To enable Respondus Monitor for a quiz:

1)   Click the "Quizzes" menu option from within your course.
