Respondus Lockdown Browser and Quizzes LTI

Jump to solution

Our school has a site license for Respondus Lockdown Browser/Monitor, and this tool is heavily utilized by our faculty.  As Beta testers, we did expect that RLDB would not work with Respondus due to its very nature, but what we did not expect was that Respondus had reached out to Instructure quite a while ago to start collaborative development of an integration that would work, and yet Instructure has not come back to that table (According to Respondus).

When can we anticipate that work will start on a new  RLDB integration?

Thank you,

Kelley

Hi Kelley, Respondus gave you accurate information, but not for lack of wanting an integration.  There were initial discussions with Respondus about how Quizzes.Next would be structured and then an agreement to get back in touch with Respondus once it was developed and ready for integration.  We're nearing that time!

Thanks for the follow-up,  @Renee_Carney ‌!

Hi  @Renee_Carney ‌, any progress on the work with Respondus?

Hey Renee,

It's been almost a year now since your update in regards to this. Can you provide any update on the progress that has been made? Everyone is very excited to move forward with Quizzes.Next. There is a lot to like about the tool! Thanks for anything you can tell me.

Thank you,

Jon DeGroot | Director of Flexible Learning

I spoke with Respondus LDB about a month ago and they are working on the integration now. So hopefully soon we will be able to use it with quizzes.next!!!!

Fantastic!

Any chance this would occur at the Assignment level, not specific to Quizzes.Next? I have a school that might like to apply RLDB to an Assignment, not a Quiz.

Like Kelley's school, ours also uses our sitewide license for RLBD/Monitor on a very regular basis. We really would like to see this compatibility established before we go live with Quizzes.Next.

That is one of our hold-ups on using Quizzes.Next as well. Simply not being able to use Respondus LockDown Browser makes many of the instructors not want to even try quizzes.next.

We just started using Lockdown browser and it not working with quizzes.next will definitely hinder our ability to make the switch from the current quizzes.

I second what  @kona  said. She and I work with an area of our college that has extremely high security in everything, and they depend on LockDown Browser for the security their testing needs. If it won't work with the new Quizzes.Next feature, that will not be good for us or that area that uses it so heavily.

Has anyone heard an update on this? Especially now that Quizzes.next is in "General Availability"?

We've had individuals asking about using quizzes.next but we are holding off until it works with Respondus LockDown browser.

It's critical that quizzes.next and RLDB are working before we upgrade.

We are  just in the process of planning Quizzes.Next pilots across our institution. Having a secure browser is an essential requirement in certain contexts and I was hoping the RLDB might  be the answer.

It has been nearly a year since we heard that "We're nearing that time". And now there is talk about removing the BETA from Quizzes.next. Yet, it still does not appear to integrate with Respondus. I do not feel it needs to lose it's Beta tag until it can work with Respondus. Until it can be locked down, it is not ready for main stream. Few of the teachers in my school have been willing to even give it a try until it works with Respondus and I think a lot of teacher feel that way. :SO, it really is not getting the BETA testing it needs.

1. When will Quizzes.next integrate with Respondus

2. When will the old Quiz Tool be removed (because we need to use it until this integration takes place)

Need to ditto all the comments.  It needs to still say beta and should even give a warning that it does not work with Respondus.  Until then, I need to set it administratively to OFF.

Where does this stand?  This issue, along with some of the functional ones, will keep us from implementing Quizzes Next.

It looks like this discussion has recent posts from clients but nothing from Instructure on what the plan is. I was also planning to do professional development on Quizzes.next but our high school staff will not switch if it doesn't work with RLDB. I am very interested in knowing what the plan is about the old quiz generator. Once staff has RLDB, they are not going to give it up which makes the new Quizzes LTI a no go for our teachers.

We have heard nothing new on Quizzes.Next, and definitely nothing about its compatibility with Respondus LDB/Monitor.

While we participated in several rounds of beta testing, I have turned it off in our account.

I suspect more and more schools will do that until the issues [including the Lockdown Browser] are resolved.

  @Renee_Carney ‌  I think some schools and teachers are anxious for answers on the Lockdown Browser, but also on the other issues that remain with Quizzes Next.  Can you help?

 @rswengel 

Quizzes.Next User Group‌ is the best place to find consolidated links for Quizzes.Next.  Releases are now included in Canvas Release Notes and the guides are integrated into Canvas Guides.  The Quizzes.Next Feature Comparison document is very helpful in showing how close to parity the priority is.  When it comes to Respondus though, I still do not have a strong answer for you- the development will be dependent on them.

Our institution has been a Canvas customer since January 2018.  Our Online Learning Department worked with Canvas and our Information Technology Department for Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 to setup our Canvas environment, to teach ourselves how to use Canvas, and then to teach a group of early adopter instructors.  We started to use Canvas for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 with a limited number of instructors and courses as we continued to train more instructors.  We started to exclusively use Canvas with our Summer 2019 semester.

We have not used Quizzes.Next in either non-production or production environments.

We are not currently a subscriber to any virtual proctor solutions but we are in the process of evaluating a few possibilites.

Does anyone know if there are any other Respondus Lockdown Browser or Respondus Monitor alternatives that are currently compatible with Quizzes.Next?

I thank you in advance.

My understanding is that there are not any proctor solution integrations with Quizzes.next at this time. I asked some people on the quizzes.next team at the conference and was told they do not expect it to be integrated for at least another year. Our nursing faculty were very excited to move to quizzes.next to take advantage of aligning outcomes to individual questions but have backed out as they couldn't give up the proctoring functionality.

@ebarrios :

We wanted to let you know that Respondus and Instructure have completed the integration between Canvas’ New Quizzes and LockDown Browser. The integration was released on July 21, 2020.
Your Respondus admin should have received an email from Respondus in relation to this.
