Respondus Overview

Article Last Updated September 2018

Two Respondus tools are centrally-supported at the U of A:

Respondus Quiz Authoring Tool - a powerful assessment tool that instructors can use to create and manage exams which can be printed to paper or published directly to eClass. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment and are transferable between different LMS tools.

Respondus Lockdown Browser - this custom browser locks down the testing environment within eClass. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. The software is available for students to install on their personal machines if they are required to complete a Lockdown Browser restricted quiz. (New in Fall 2018, Lockdown Browser is no longer compatible with campus computer lab infrastructure and is no longer available in those environments - please see available alternatives at Security Features for eClass Quizzes.)
