Respondus LockDown Browser


Respondus LockDown Browser is a customized browser that increases the security and stability of online testing in Blackboard. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser to take a test or quiz, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. Students are locked into an assessment until it is submitted for grading. Students will need to download the browser PRIOR to taking the tests.


The LockDown Browser is installed on all BTC computers (classrooms and computer labs). The LockDown Browser can only be installed on BTC campus computers by ITS.
