Respondus (Test Generator, LockDown Browser, Monitor, & StudyMate)

There are actually 2 different Respondus products that we use in conjunction with Desire2Learn.

  • There is the Respondus Lockdown Browser which is used by students when taking a test that has been predetermined as one that needs to be more secure.
  • Then there is just Respondus which is a test generation software used to move questions from LMS to LMS or from a Word document into D2L

Unless the words "Lockdown Browser" are specifically stated, most information is about the test generation software.
