Virtually Proctored Tests: Chromebook

Please note: These instructions are for students who are taking a virtually proctored test. Faculty can find information about virtually proctoring tests here: Faculty Proctoring Information

Before Test Day

  1. Download and install LockDown Browser extension using this link: LockDown browser extension
  2. Confirm that your computer’s camera and microphone are working properly.
  3. Check your course information to determine if your instructor will be proctoring your exam using Virtual Faculty Proctoring in Zoom or using Respondus Monitor.
  4. If your instructor will be proctoring your test via Zoom, download the Zoom Client application and complete the SSO sign-in on the computer you will be using to test. For more information about this process, follow the instructions for your device in this article: Zoom: Install and Log in 
  5. Take a practice quiz (which should be provided by your instructor) using LockDown Browser. 

On Test Day

  1. Select a place to take your exam that is quiet, free of distraction, and where you will not be interrupted.
  2. Take your test in a room with good lighting in front of you. It is best not to have a bright light behind you. Close curtains and window shades located behind you.
  3. Avoid wearing baseball caps or hats with brims.
  4. Ensure your computer is on a firm surface (a desk or table). Do NOT have the computer on your lap, a bed, or other surfaces where the device (or you) are likely to move.
  5. Clear your workspace of any unauthorized material, such as a phone, other devices, textbooks, notes, etc.
  6. Before starting the test, know how much time is available for it, and also that you’ve allotted sufficient time to complete it.
  7. Remain at your computer for the duration of the test (do not leave from where you are seated).

Taking your test

Your course information will tell you which method your instructor will be using to virtually proctor your exam. There are two options: Respondus Monitor- where your testing session will be video recorded- or Virtual Faculty Proctoring while you are in a prescheduled Zoom meeting. Both methods of virtually proctored tests will require LockDown browser.
