Student: How to Use Respondus Monitor

Updated on

USING WITH A WEBCAM (Respondus Monitor):

If an exam requires LockDown Browser and a webcam (Respondus Monitor), complete the following steps after starting your quiz:

1. First, review and agree to the Terms of Use.

2. The Webcam Check will confirm that your webcam and microphone are working properly. The first time the Webcam Check is performed on your computer, Adobe Flash Player may require you to select Allow and Remember.

3. The remaining steps of the Startup Sequence will depend on settings chosen by your instructor (not all are required). Follow the instructions and note your progress along the top of the screen.

Student Photo: The Student Photo setting takes a picture of you.

Show ID: If required by your instructor, you may be asked to show a form of picture ID to verify name and identity. (NOTE: Any photo ID is acceptable unless otherwise noted.)

Environment Check: Environment Check requires students to film their surroundings, based on the requirements you set by the instructor.


NOTE: At the end of the Environment Check, the webcam continues to record your actions prior to the test starting.

You may begin your exam after the Startup Sequence is complete. You cannot exit LockDown Browser until the test is submitted for grading.
