Teachers have the ability to set a Lockdown Browser mode for students while they take an assessment in Otus.
The option for the Lockdown Browser will appear in the final popup screen before assigning the assessment to a class. Be sure to turn this feature on by moving the toggle to the right as shown in the image below.
(Here is an article that will walk you through the process of Assigning an Assessment).
***Students must download the Lockdown browser to their computer the first time they take an assessment using this feature.
A popup will appear guiding students through the process after they click the row of the assessment they wish to take.
Once the Lockdown Browser is installed on a student's device, the student will select "Take Assessment" from the Assessment module.
If the Browser is already downloaded, students can just click Take Assessment. If not, have them click the Windows icon.
Your computer will ask permission to download the browser setup. Grant permission, then choose a location for the file. Once it's completed downloading, you can open it in the location you chose for the file, or by clicking the link at the bottom of your Chrome Browser.
The first time you open both the setup and the browser, you may have to grant permission to open it, since it was downloaded from the internet. Grant the permission to use the programs.
Select your preferred language for the setup.
When the download is complete, click Finish.
Now, when the student sees the below screen, they can click Take Assessment, and open the Lockdown Browser, which will prevent them from using any other programs or tabs while taking the locked down assessment.
