A few things to note…

  • The "Password to access exam (optional)" setting under LockDown Browser Settings> Password Settings will only appear for Classic Quizzes and should only be used if you plan to allow students to go to a testing center or proctored setting with a third-party present that will enter the password. If you want to add a password for New Quizzes you must set that up in the New Quiz settings.
