Using LockDown Browser with WebAssign and McGraw-Hill Connect

Respondus Monitor is NOT integrated with WebAssign and McGraw-Hill Connect. Both platforms have their own customized versions of the LockDown Browser. Students will need to install the customized LockDown Browser for each platform in order to take the exams that require the use of the LockDown Browser.


WebAssign LockDown Browser prevents students from using any other application on their computer while they are taking an exam. However, it does not record students’ testing behavior and will not prevent students from accessing resources on other mobile devices.

WebAssign LockDown Browser only works on a computer (Windows or Mac); it does NOT work on an iPad.

Below are some resources from WebAssign that show how to use their LockDown Browser and help ensure academic integrity in online exams:

Alternatively, if you prefer to use Respondus LockDown Browser + Monitor, you can set up a quiz on Canvas, create a question with a link to the exam on WebAssign. Refer to the resource below for details:
