To set up a test in Blackboard that requires students to use Respondus LockDown Browser, follow these steps:
If you would like students to provide a password for the exam, you will enter the exam password in the appropriate box.
Even if you do not enter a password on this page, Respondus will autogenerate a password on the Blackboard Test Options page. This password tells the system that Respondus is required for this test; if you delete the autogenerated password in the Test Options page your Respondus test will not work and students won’t be able to take the test.
If you see a password like the one shown above in your Blackboard Test Options, do not delete it. Your test will not work in Respondus without this password.
Be sure to instruct your student to choose Missouri State University - Blackboard SaaS as the server when they are prompted. If they do not do this, it is likely that their screen will lock on them.
