Using LockDown Browser requires that your district install Respondus LockDown Browser (MasteryConnect OEM version) to your student devices. Once LockDown Browser has been installed, please contact MasteryConnect Support to enable the LockDown Browser feature in your account.
Install Respondus LockDown Browser (MasteryConnect OEM Version) on Student Devices
Please download the correct installer for each device:
- MacOS - Download LockDown Browser for Mac
- Windows - Download LockDown Browser MSI Installer for managed installs
- iPad - Download LockDown Browser from the App Store. When prompted on first run, users should select "MasteryConnect" as the Institution
For districts already using LockDown Browser on Mac and PC with other apps, please note that you will also need to install the MasteryConnect OEM version. Both editions can be installed side by side without any conflicts. iPad users can continue to use LockDown Browser if it has already been installed for another application. The auto-launch technique will work regardless of whether another institution has been selected.
Enable LockDown Browser for Assessments
The LockDown Browser tool can be used for benchmark assessments and Enhanced Accommodation (EA) formative assessments. LockDown Browser cannot be used for uploaded assessments or non-EA formative assessments.
You can activate LockDown Browser for an assessment by selecting the Require Lockdown Browser checkbox on the benchmark delivery page.
After LockDown Browser has been enabled for an assessment, students can access the LockDown Browser tool through student.masteryconnect.com, the student portal, or through an LTI connection.
