Recommendations

  • Advise your student to check the Computer Requirements at SPH. Examsoft doesn't work on Android (tablets or Chromebooks) or Linux operating systems. 
  • Make sure all students have access to the App. For that, it is highly recommended to have a practice test before a real quiz/exam.

Respondus

Respondus LockDown Browser 

This is a tool that works in both LMS, Blackboard and Canvas, and prevents students from accessing other applications on their desktop/laptop, including other browsers and communication channels, during an exam. Respondus Monitor is a tool used in conjunction with Respondus Lockdown Browser in eCampus and Canvas to record students taking the exam using Artificial Intelligence. This algorithm flags any testing irregularities for review by the faculty member and/or TA. See Respondus LockDown Browser Tutorials

This software enables the creation and management of printed and online exams. You can create exams directly within Respondus, import existing exams from word processor files, or pull content from publisher test banks.

We provide a university-wide site license for Respondus, which is available at no cost for instructors.

Visit the Texas A&M Software Store to download Respondus at no cost. Note: The software licensing expires annually and must be updated.

Respondus Monitor builds upon Respondus LockDown Browser, using a student’s webcam and video analytics to prevent cheating during exams.
