Respondus LockDown Browser (LDB) is a customized browser that increases the security of online testing in Canvas. It is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems. Tests designed to be taken in Respondus LDB cannot be accessed through a standard web browser.
Respondus LDB functions much like like a standard browser, but some options have been removed or work differently to offer a robust and secure testing environment. When students use Respondus LDB to take a Canvas test, they are unable to print, copy, go to another website or access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading.
Check ahead with your instructor to determine whether or not the test will require a proctor as you may need to schedule an appointment with them in order to take the test.
