Respondus Lockdown Browser is a proctoring tool that allows students to securely complete online tests and quizzes right from their personal computers. This software maintains academic integrity while allowing students to take exams without needing to travel to designated testing sites. The quizzes and tests are hosted within our Learning Management System, Canvas, so configuration and grading can be done all in one place.
Faculty can find resources on enabling and configuring Lockdown by following this link: Lockdown Resources for Faculty. Additional assistance can be obtained by contacting the our Academic Support Team via https://servicedesk.vsc.edu
Students will need to download the Lockdown browser to their personal computers in order to access these tests. VSC students can download this tool by using the following link: VSC Lockdown Browser. Note that only up-to-date Windows and Mac computers are compatible with Lockdown–Chromebooks, tablets, and smartphones are not supported.
