  4. You may also enter an optional exit password that can be used to close LockDown Browser during a test.

    To give students the option to either take the exam with a webcam or in a proctored testing lab, select Either Respondus Monitor or a proctored lab can be used to take this exam. A test password will then be required to access the test (for use in proctored settings).

    Now select the items to be included in the Startup Sequence, which includes the steps a student must complete prior to the start of an exam. Most settings are optional and can be reordered by dragging and dropping them to the desired order.

  6. Click Save and Close to apply settings.
