If you are using a Chromebook to access Otus, your teacher may enable the Otus LockDown Browser to provide a more secure testing experience.

1️⃣ Log in to Otus

To log into your account, go to Once there, if your school has Gmail, Microsoft, Clever, or Classlink logins, click on the corresponding button and log in with your username and password. Ask your teacher if you aren't sure.

If you don't use any of the login types above, your teacher should have the email and password you should log in with.

2️⃣ Find the assessment in the list

Find the assessment and click on it. You can search for the assessment in the search field, or you can choose the class from the dropdown menu to filter your list.

You can also filter your assessment list based on the status such as New!, Graded, Turned In, or In Progress.

Important Note: Remember, once you submit your assessment, you won't be able to go back to view your answers or make changes. If you want to leave your work and come back to it, just exit the assessment.

3️⃣ Choose to take assessment

You will need to select Take Assessment on the pop-up.

Once you click take assessment, your Chromebook is now locked down, which means you cannot go to other sites, open your Chromebook files, or access any other apps.

4️⃣ Submit your assessment

When you finish and submit your assessment, you can then click continue to return to your Otus home page.
