Respondus Tools for Assessment

Respondus offers a suite of tools to assist with your assessment needs in Canvas. University of Delaware has acquired a university wide license for the following tools for one year (through July 31, 2021).

Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is a program students download and install on their own computers that is used when taking an online quiz, test, or exam in Canvas where the instructor has chosen to use it. It prevents new browser windows or tabs, navigating away from the test, etc. Respondus LockDown Browser also includes an optional feature called Respondus Monitor which records the student’s webcam during an assessment session.

Respondus LockDown Browser will be installed in the IT computer lab located in the lower level of Smith Hall. These computers will only support LockDown Browser. They do not support Respondus Monitor because they don’t have webcams.

For faculty transferring quizzes from a non-Canvas format, another Respondus product is available. Respondus 4.0 is a desktop application that assists in the conversion of existing quizzes in specially formatted Word documents into a format suitable for a Canvas quiz.
