Using Respondus Monitor
Respondus Monitor is a webcam feature that records students during online exams. When this feature is enabled for a test, students are required to use a webcam with Lockdown Browser.
If you do not have Respondus LockDown Browser installed on your computer, see the Installing Respondus LockDown Browser tutorial.
Follow these steps to take a test using Respondus Monitor:
Open Lockdown Browser.
Navigate to the test you want to take and open it.
Follow the Start-up Sequence instructions for the webcam.
Before the exam begins, the student will be led through the start-up sequence.
The guidelines and tips step, which is optional, walks the student through a series of helpful items on how to have a suitable testing environment and avoid problems.
If selected by the instructor, the student photo step takes a picture of the student to help confirm the identity of the student. The instructor can also require students to show a form of photo identification in this step called show ID. The instructions for this step can be modified.
The environment check can be customized to have students record a brief video of their surroundings to ensure that external resources like books, devices, or other computers have been put away.
The final step has a student confirm that facial detection can be achieved by the Respondus Monitor system before proceeding to the exam.
The student then begins the exam. The recording will end automatically when the students submit the exam for grading.
