Taking a Respondus Lockdown Browser Quiz on Educat

  1. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet in the location where you will be taking the quiz.
  2. Locate the “LockDown Browser” shortcut on the desktop and double-click it. (For Mac users, launch “LockDown Browser” from the Applications folder.)
  3. If prompted to close a blocked program (e.g. screen capture, instant messaging) choose "Yes" when prompted. -- OR -- , close LockDown Browser and then close the blocked program(s) before restarting.
  4. Log into your Educat course using NMU UserID and password.
  5. If displayed, DO NOT click the "Attempt quiz now" link on the Educat dashboard after logging in. Instead navigate to the Educat course, then the quiz, and select the "Attempt quiz now" button.
  6. Once a quiz has been started with LockDown Browser, you cannot exit until the "Submit all and finish" button is clicked.


  • Prior to your first assessment, complete the practice quiz available in most courses using the LockDown Browser to make sure it works correctly.
  • If a LockDown Browser update is available the program will take time to install it when the Lockdown Browser is a opened. Something you might check for before the day of a major exam.
  • For Windows computers, routinely install Windows updates (due on the second Tuesday of the month after 6 pm) so you don't have to wait for them to install if you have to restart your computer just before the exam.
