Respondus Monitor is used at hundreds of institutions across the world. Here is what some users are saying.
gives more credibility to our online coursesWith LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor, the grade distribution on exams for online courses is more consistent with what we obtain in face-to-face courses. This gives more credibility to our online courses, and increases faculty confidence in online testing.

the best option for large-scale deploymentWhat made Respondus Monitor so compelling is that it’s cost-effective and can be used in a broad range of courses... Live proctoring simply isn’t scalable and is very expensive. We’ll use live proctoring if there is a specific situation that requires it, but Respondus Monitor is the best option for large-scale deployment.

gaining back class time for teachingRespondus Monitor gives me confidence about using online tests in my face-to-face classes. Students take the exams outside of classroom time, so I've gained six hours of teaching in each course. This has really changed my classes for the better.

we can approach our accreditation board with confidenceRespondus Monitor was the ideal solution for us. Support issues are minimal, it’s easy for instructors to use, and students don’t have to pay fees to take their exams. Everyone is happy... As an institution, we can approach our accreditation board with confidence, knowing that significant steps were taken to ensure honesty within our online education program.

students know they can’t cheatRespondus Monitor reduces the level of cheating very significantly. On average, test scores dropped by 10 percentage points -- with no other changes made to the course or exam questions. Simply put, students know they can’t cheat when using Respondus Monitor. And I get a truer picture of how each student is performing.

making online courses fully onlineWe want our online courses to be fully online, and Respondus Monitor makes that possible. Students don’t need to come to campus anymore to take tests... Respondus Monitor also reduces crowding at proctored testing labs and helps conserve large amounts of paper that used to be used for printed tests.

other options were cost-prohibitiveLockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor have been overwhelmingly accepted by students. Prior to this, students were driving great distances or incurring costs at proctoring locations… Other options were cost-prohibitive when looked at from a mass deployment standpoint. Features, cost, and the comfort level of students all played a part in our decision-making process.

students are better preparedThe value of Respondus Monitor is that it encourages student accountability. Our newest nursing cohort used Respondus Monitor on every test. Students know in advance they won’t have the opportunity to use their resources during exams, so they are better prepared. This preparedness should carry through to the licensing exam they take at the end of the program.

peace of mind... and convenienceFor me, the best thing about Respondus Monitor is peace of mind... For students, it’s convenience. Quizzes can be done at any time, even the middle of the night. Students can come to campus to take assessments in proctored labs, or they can use Respondus Monitor. Some students live 30-40 minutes from campus, so they generally opt for Respondus Monitor.
