More options will appear after you select this option. 





8. More Respondus Lockdown Browser settings will appear below.

You can add a password to the test as well as add more advanced options like the use of a calculator. 

This is also where you will be able to add Respondus Monitor which uses video to monitor students while they are taking the test. 


9. Click Save + Close when you are finished. 

You will now see Required listed under the Respondus Lockdown browser column on the test list.
