When Taking an Exam

  2. Log into exam server, select your course and navigate to the quiz.
  3. Click the “Launch LockDown Browser” button to open LockDown Browser and start the quiz.
  4. The test will then start. Once a test has been started with Respondus LockDown Browser, you cannot exit until the Submit button is clicked.

If the Internet (or wi-fi) connection is lost for an extended period of time, you would not be able to continue with the exam, just as if you were only using LockDown Browser. You need to restart the browser and attempt the exam again.
