As we prepare for final examinations Clemson Online wants to remind you about Lockdown Browser and to provide a best practice if you need your learners to remotely demonstrate that their exam space is free from notes.
Lockdown Browser, in a nutshell, allows you to maintain academic integrity through its own browser (like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.) where learners cannot open other websites, copy information from a test, print the test, or even open a separate application (such as a Word document full of notes) while taking the test.
Lockdown Browser is easy to use and it is easy to customize what is and what is not available. If you need your students to utilize specific websites as they complete their exams, you can customize Lockdown Browser to allow those sites.
Download the current version of Lockdown Browser, faculty guides, and student guides here.
If you are remotely and synchronously administering your final exam with Lockdown Browser, you will likely require that your students prove their workspace is free from any materials that may unfairly give them an advantage over their peers. Having learners move their cameras around to prove they do not have any materials tacked on the wall behind the computer or laying on the ground.
This could be especially helpful if you decide to incorporate Monitor into your academic integrity process.
Design a detailed and specific checklist of what needs to be shown on camera. Here are some guidelines to consider as you make your checklist.
