Teachers have the ability to enable Lockdown Browser mode for students while they take an assessment in Otus. 

Enable Lockdown Browser

  • First, Assign your assessment.
  • Scroll to Settings and check Lockdown Browser.
  • Once you check Lockdown Browser, you will see Allow Printing appear. This will give students access to print any page of the assessment using the printer icon at the top of their browser window.

Students must have the Respondus Lockdown Browser installed on their device in order to take an assessment using this feature. To learn more, click the button below.


Take the Assessment (Students)

Students will click on the appropriate assessment in their assessments list.

The student will choose Start and then Take Assessment on the second pop-up.

Students are restricted to the assessment screen until they finish and submit their assessment.

Special Steps for Students on Chromebooks

Students can launch the locked browser with our special chromebook app by selecting “Otus” from the Apps link on their login screen. 

When the App starts, the login page will appear and the student can login and navigate to the exam.

During an exam, the student will be locked into the testing environment until the assessment is submitted for grading.

Once the exam is complete the user must restart the Chromebook to fully exit the exam.
