"Safe Exam Browser" for tests/quizzes

Follow

I'd like more security for test-taking. Can Schoology work in conjunction with Safe Exam Browser or a similar program?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your patience! We've released a lockdown browser app that should help with testing! 

    For more information, go to https://www.schoology.com/blog/secure-your-assessments-our-respondus-lockdown-browser-app.

    Best,

    This was an awesome feature in Moodle and dramatically reduced the cheating during the test because they couldn't open another window and search for answers. I was able to more accurately determine what my students knew about the content.

    This was possibly the only good feature of moodle tests.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't even know this was possible. That would be an absolutely amazing feature. Even better if it could also somehow work in the Schoology iPhone app to prevent students from switching to other apps. I know that is unlikely, but I can dream!

    Would it be possible to stop them from being able to take a screen shot as well?

    Possible to have a test bank that give them each a different combination of questions?

    Please add this feature.  We would love this.  Our former Moodle using teachers really miss this feature.

    Without this feature, we need to farm out our assessments to some other platform. That's not good for the tech eco-system.

    I do miss this feature from my old Moodle platform.  How about working on it for Schoology?

    This would make the Schoology Quiz function MUCH more useful.

    I completely agree.  Of the features I would like to see added, this is at the top of the list.  Please Schoology add this function!

    So, this is the most requested feature that should be added to schoology.  Is this in the works yet???

    Yes please...my High School teachers are clamoring for this functionality! We used Respondus Lockdown Browser with Moodle and have also looked at SoftwareSecure as an alternative, but neither currently integrate with Schoology.

    Currently students can swipe out of SGY and onto a browser or notes. I've stopped giving quizzes on this until this can get locked down. PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!

    Please add this feature. I have yet to do tests/quizzes on schoology as I am worried that students will open up other apps/webpages to find the answers.

    I agree, I did not like Moodle but I did like their secure test/quiz taking environment. I would like to see something similar in SCHOOLOGY as well.

    I agree with this request, if possible for computers or ipads.

    This is a feature that most of our teachers need to have to be comfortable giving any online assessment.

    Ditto. It would be very useful, and make proctoring exams much less stressful.

    A lock-down browser for tests is something that would be a huge help!

    Would this also work on iOS devices? It would be a great addition to Schoology quizzes to be "Locked in" to the Schoology quiz and notify teachers if a Screen Shot was taken for example. - Thanks

    Concerns about security are one of our teachers' main hesitations regarding Schoology quizzes. It would be terrific if Schoology could incorporate features such as Safe Exam Browsers.

    New to Schoology, and this topic was an instant problem I ran into. Safe Exam Browser would be great
