Respondus Lockdown Browser

Respondus Lockdown Browser (RLB) is a secure browser that can be used for taking tests in Moodle.  Not all tests or quizzes in Moodle will use Respondus.  If an instructor chooses to use Respondus, while creating the test, they will enable the settings for Respondus.  If a Moodle test requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used the instructions for the exam should indicate as such.  See steps and examples below.
