Respondus Troubleshooting


  • Respondus Lockdown Browser does not work on Chromebooks
  • You must have a webcam and a reliable, high-speed internet connection to use Respondus Monitor
  • Most Respondus problems are due to one of the following:
    • Firewall conflicts > turn off the firewall
    • Anti-Virus software conflicts > turn off the anti-virus program
    • Loss of internet connectivity > send teacher a message and try to reconnect and resume exam
  • Other potential issues
    • Give the browser a few seconds to fully load the exam before clicking 'Take the Quiz'. Clicking too soon has been reported as a potential cause of issues
    • Browse to the quiz from the Assignments page, or the Modules page. Sometimes following links in notifications or in the 'To do' section of your Dashboard will fail to send all of the necessary parameters to the Canvas server.
