Lockdown Browser: Student

If your quiz in Canvas requires the Lockdown Browser, you can download and install the browser through Canvas (not through AU Install).

Within your course, navigate to the quiz you want to take. Although the button is labeled “Take the Quiz,” it will not actually begin the quiz.

To download the browser, click “Take the Quiz.”

Note: If the Lockdown Browser is required, this button does not start the quiz.
