Instructor Q&A

Lock screen on assessments


Is there a way to lock the screen on assessments? What I mean by this is when giving a test, example area and volume. Students are able to open a google tab and search up the formula. Is there a way to lock the assessments so students must submit before being able to open another tab or it submits for them? An example is on google forms there is a functions that is lock mode(see picture below) On the "test/quiz" tool there is an option "Resumable" I have not seen this same option on assessments.

    Hi Carol!

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    If your school or organization currently has a license for the Respondus LockDown Browser, your System Admin can install the Respondus app to your Schoology Enterprise account. This provides instructors the option to require that students use the LockDown Browser when taking tests and quizzes on Schoology. 

    The Respondus LockDown Browser (LDB) is a custom browser that instructors can use to lock down their testing environment in Schoology. Installing the app enables instructors to require that students use the LDB when taking tests and quizzes in a Schoology course.

    The Respondus LockDown Browser opens the test in full-screen mode and prevents students from navigating away from the assessment or accessing other applications, such as the Internet or their notes, while the test is in progress. The browser also prevents copy and paste, right-clicking, screen capture, messaging, or printing.

    Here's  Help Guide with more information on how to use the Respondus LockDown Browser in Schoology.
