Respondus LockDown Browser provides another level of security for online testing. The LockDown Browser disables all functions of the student’s computer other than the test being taken so students cannot copy/paste, search the internet, or access any documents on their computer while using LockDown Browser. If students are using their own computer rather than in a proctored computer lab, they could still have another device available to allow them to access internet content or notes. All UF Computer Labs have LockDown Browser installed.
If students do not have LockDown browser installed on their computers, they will be prompted to download and install when they access the test. We recommend giving students a “practice quiz” that will allow them to install the browser and trouble-shoot any problems prior to taking a for-credit test.
