Extended Abstract

Discover how over 1,000 institutions prevent cheating during online tests, in both proctored and non-proctored settings. In this session, you’ll learn how LockDown Browser prevents printing, copying and accessing other applications during online exams. Also see how Respondus Monitor, a fully-automated proctoring solution, adds video and webcam technology to LockDown Browser to prevent cheating in non-proctored testing environments. Suspicious behaviors are automatically flagged and instructors can access additional data without leaving the learning management system itself.

Along with a demonstration of the software, you’ll learn about key challenges of online testing, including verification of student identity, preventing students from accessing unapproved materials during an exam, how to protect exam content, and more. This session also covers best practices and rollout tips for new users.
