Organization Administration Refresh

Managing organizations is now easier than ever with a refreshed new look and improved functionality. When administrators go to Organization Administration - Manage Organizations from the menu, they will see a grid with all organizations in their purview listed. From there, they can edit existing organizations as desired, or add new organizations.

In addition, it is now possible to enable/disable Lockdown Browser (LDB) at the organization level.

*It is advisable that Lockdown Browser remain enabled for all organizations unless there are extenuating circumstances. If LDB is disabled, it is required that remote proctoring, or another form of direct proctoring be in place.


  • Chromebook Lockdown Browser Update - Google is retiring their Chromebook App technology at the end of 2024 therefore Chromebook Kiosk Mode App will no longer work. In response, we are releasing a Chromebook Lockdown Browser extension to be used on Chromebook devices for proctored assessments. Please contact for more information about how to update your Chromebook Lockdown Browser.
  • Proctored assessment offline submission - We have implemented a process for students to submit their assessments without losing progress in the event of an internet connection outage.
    • If there is an internet outage during the assessment but it reconnects before the student submits, the assessment will submit without a problem and no data will be lost.
    • If there is an outage when the student attempts to submit, they will receive a message that says their submission failed and to try again. They will get three attempts. After the third attempt, they will be presented with an option to download a file that contains their assessment activity data. They will download the file which will be available in the device’s downloads folder. They will share the file with their proctor, who will share it with (or they can share the file directly with Support). Support will use the new Offline Assessment Submission tool to process the file. When complete, the student’s assessment will be processed and their score will become available.
