Require that Students Use the LockDown Browser for a Quiz


This document details how to make the Respondus LockDown required in order to take a quiz in Brightspace.

The LockDown browser is a potent tool, and is best used in a controlled environment where use can be monitored, and issues troubleshooted quickly. However, the LockDown browser can also be installed on Windows and Mac machines for quizzes distributed through Brightspace and intended for completion outside of a lab.
