Proctoring Resources for Students at UCF

Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor

All academic courses at UCF now have access to Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor to support academic integrity in courses with online instruction.

Respondus LockDown Browser plus Monitor is a secure assessment browser that students must download and install to take their exam. If the instructor enables Monitor, then a webcam and microphone is required and the student is recorded during the exam.

Students are advised to check their course syllabus to determine if an instructor requires Respondus LockDown Browser plus Monitor for online assessments. If so, instructors may include a practice exam that students can engage in to resolve any technical issues prior to taking a higher stakes quiz or exam.

Note: Students will be prompted to download and install Respondus LockDown Browser when attempting to begin a LockDown-enabled exam in a traditional browser. However, we recommend downloading and installing the browser ahead of time to avoid any delays when accessing a quiz or exam during its availability window.

For Canvas Classic Quizzes, it is important for students to close all standard browsers, start LockDown Browser, log into Canvas, wait until the Canvas home page fully loads (no spinning circle in the browser tab), navigate to the course, wait until the course home page fully loads (no spinning circle in the browser tab), then go to the Quizzes or Modules area to start the direct link to the exam with “-Requires Respondus LockDown Browser” in the quiz title. Students should not use any shortcut or notifications links to access the quiz. This will result in an error.


Honorlock is in use by a limited number of faculty with live proctoring needs associated with accreditation for a specific exam. In other cases, Respondus Lockdown Browser with Monitor is sufficient for online proctoring needs. Visit our Honorlock page to learn more about how to use Honorlock.
