Online Proctoring Resources

Effective Spring 2020, UHCL licenses several online proctoring solutions for instructors who deliver online quizzes, tests, and exams in Blackboard. The information on this page includes resources for faculty and students on Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor and ProctorU Review+.

Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor

LockDown Browser is a locked browser for taking tests in Blackboard Learn. It prevents students from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during a test. If a Blackboard test requires that LockDown Browser be used, students will not be able to take the test with a standard web browser. Instructors also have the option to use Respondus Monitor for proctoring with their quizzes and exams that use LockDown Browser. Monitor is a proctoring system for online tests that uses the student's web cam to record their testing session. Faculty can then review students’ exam sessions, as needed from within the Respondus LockDown Browser tool in Blackboard.

ProctorU Review+ 

Temporarily unavailable, but will be restored as either Review+ with Proctored Launch or Review+ with Automated Launch in early August. Review+ with Proctored Launch combines automated ID verification and a proctored launch process with AI-based monitoring and review.
