As a school district, you can decide what applications are allowed while using LockDown Browser. Only district-level data administrators can whitelist options
Note: Whitelisting options does not allow students to switch between an assessment and other applications. Whitelisted applications run in the background behind the testing window. For example, students may participate in a Zoom conference with a teacher but will not be able to switch to the Zoom application to view the video while taking an assessment in Aware.
Step 1: Navigate to the Assessments Setting gear and select Configure Lockdown Browser.
Step 2: Click the Add New Whitelist Item and enter the name of the process you would like to whitelist. Lab administrators can use the Lab Installer Links downloads in a lab setting.
Application names are specific to the operating system on which LockDown Browser is running. Windows and Mac OS systems differ. For example, to whitelist Zoom on Windows, you need to enter “zoom.exe”. To whitelist Zoom on MacOS, you need to enter “us.zoom.app”.
Note: It is important to note that if your district operates both Windows and MacOS systems, you will need to enter both the Windows and MacOS entries.
To find the correct process name to whitelist in Windows, launch the application you would like to whitelist, then launch the Task Manager and use the text from the “Name” column in the “Details” tab.
To find the correct process name to whitelist in MacOS, launch the application you would like to whitelist, then launch Activity Monitor and use the text in the “Process Name” column.
