Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a customized browser that increases the security of online testing in SacCT. It prevents students from printing, copying, going to another website, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a SacCT assessment requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, the assessment won't be accessible with a standard Web browser.
Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking assessments in SacCT. It should not be used in other areas of SacCT or to visit other websites.
Note: This software works only with Internet Explorer (Windows) and Safari (Macintosh) browsers.
