Respondus LockDown Browser

 

Respondus LockDown Browser (LDB) is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within D2L Brightspace. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started that uses Respondus LockDown Browser, students are locked into that environment until they submit the quiz/test for grading.

  • Instructors may want to advise students that an install is needed prior to beginning a quiz/test that uses LDB.
  • Instructors may also want to consider offering a quick, simple, non-graded quiz using LockDown Browser before any major quiz/test is given in the class to be sure students are successful with LDB.

Turnitin

 

Plagiarism Checking with Grademark Options - Turnitin eliminates the time-consuming process of verifying student authorship by presenting easy-to-use reports that show how much of a document is original, cited from other sources, or unoriginal. With Turnitin as an educational tool, instructors can promote academic integrity in their classroom. Students learn the importance of originality in their writing.

The D2L Dropbox tool has an integration option for enabling this originality check on a student's submitted paper. Instructors may allow the student to view the originality report.
