How do prevent cheating while conducting an exam online using Canvas Quizzes? What is the LockDown Browser?

For an exam that needs to be conducted online, one recommended approach is to set it up in Canvas Quizzes and have students take it in conjunction with the Respondus LockDown Browser. Combining these tools will prevent students from opening other sites on the same computer, or copying/pasting from other applications. It will also provide features that facilitate administering timed exams, release and closing dates, and section-specific exams.

For information on getting started, refer to our LockDown Browser – Securing Canvas Quizzes page.
