The Faculty Resource Center connects faculty members with resources to enhance teaching, research, classroom assessment, advising, technology use, grant-seeking, and department chair work. The Center for Attention, Learning, and Memory (CALM) works closely with the FRC to provide services to faculty.

Presenters: Karla Bright and Sam Srinivasan

The Respondus Lockdown Browser is used by many institutions to lock a browser/computer during a Moodle quiz/text so that no other windows can be opened on the student's device during the test.

Karla and Sam will explain and demonstrate the features of this product. Karla has also provided written instructions for how to use Respondus on this site:

Other notes:

IT has enabled an exception that will allow Zoom to run alongside Respondus to allow for Zoom proctoring.

Respondus is an add-on piece of software that students will need to load on their computers. While it should work fine for most students, they may encounter problems. They can contact the Helpdesk with any issues. If you plan to use Respondus, it is highly recommended to first use it in a low stakes or practice quiz prior to using it for an exam.

Some of our students have reported having no access to a computer and/or Internet at home. Mike Hoffman is meeting with these students to work out accommodations.

Respondus does not work well with our assistive screen reader technology. If you have a student with this accommodation, the Disability Support Office will work with you to assign a student proctor.
