EdTech Tip of the Week: Changes with Respondus Lockdown Browser

A setting has been added to Respondus LockDown Browser that changes how students are locked into an exam. Previously, the Respondus LockDown Browser automatically locked students into an exam until it was submitted for grading. This will now be an optional exam setting for instructors, with the default set to off. The new default setting will require students to submit a reason for exiting the exam early, which can then be viewed by the instructor. For more details about this change, visit
