Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor

Enable features to help ensure authentic student exam attempts and level the playing field for students taking online exams.  LockDown Browser prevents students from browsing the computer on which they are taking a test and Monitor records the student while they sit for an exam, creating a video record that can be reviewed by the instructor later, if flagged.
