Factors that you should consider when using Respondus include:
- Technology requirements - Respondus does not work on Chromebooks, phones, and most iPads. Respondus Monitor requires a webcam. Respondus also requires a stable internet connection, and the ability to install and run software on the device used for testing. Also, if students are using computers provided by an employer, there may be firewalls that prevent download of this browser.
- Support availability - If students have an issue during the exam, the instructor would have to be able to provide assistance, or approve a reset, depending upon test settings. Therefore, please consider a testing window that will allow students who may have issues to contact you during regular hours.
For more information and training on Respondus, please see the
