Blackboard and Respondus
Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor are tools to improve security for Blackboard online testing
LockDown Browser is a customized browser installed on all CTC testing computers that secures a student's online testing environment by preventing copying and pasting and navigation away from Blackboard tests. Respondus LockDown Browser is integrated into Blackboard and can be added as an exam requirement by toggling a simple setting.
Respondus Monitor adds an additional layer of security by providing automated proctoring using a student's own webcam. As CTC testing computers do not have webcams, Monitor cannot be used in the CTC. Learn more about Respondus.
