Respondus Monitor

Respondus Monitor® is a companion product for LockDown Browserthat enables institutions to protect the integrity of non-proctored, online exams.

Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system.


Ensure your first exam using Respondus Monitor runs smoothly! Have students take an ungraded practice quiz that requires the use of LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor, before taking a graded exam.

Leave the quiz available for the duration of the course, with unlimited attempts, so students can check their setup from a different computer.
