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.

Note: ProctorHub is a legacy integration that will be retired at the end of Summer 2023.

Faculty currently using ProctorHub are encouraged to migrate to the Respondus Lockdown Browser/Monitor if they want a similar proctoring solution for their online assessments. ProctorHub is an identity verification tool that utilizes test takers’ webcams, and the modern features of current web browsers to capture the test taking process. If any complication or issue is suspected, the instructors are able to go back and investigate.


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.
