Other Resources

Respondus LockDown Browser and/or Monitor

The following series of videos shows you how to use Respondus Lockdown Browser and Respondus Lockdown Monitor. I show you how to turn these settings on, what the students see, and how you can view the results. 

Lockdown Browser is a separate browser the keeps students from opening other windows while taking the exam. Students must download "Lockdown Browser" to take the quiz.

  • Lockdown Monitor with Lockdown Browser actually records the student taking the exam while also keeping the students from accessing other windows during the exam. To use Lockdown Monitor and Lockdown Browser together, students must 
    • Download Lockdown Browser
    • Have a Webcam of some type
    • Show an ID

Online Proctoring via ProctorU

If you have an exam that needs to be proctored via ProctorU during the college closure, please complete and return the document below to Vickie Mills (vickie.mills@ws.edu).  After Vickie enters the course exam information into the ProctorU portal, you will be notified that your students may begin registering. If you plan on using ProctorU, please complete and return your Exam Information Form (opens in a new window) to Vickie Mills well in advance of your exam window.  Students MUST register for their exam at a minimum of 72 hours in advance of when they want to take the exam to avoid incurring late fees.  

Please direct your students to https://support.proctoru.com/hc/en-us/categories/115001818507 (opens in a new window) for important information on creating an account, registering for an exam, testing their equipment, etc.
