This guide shows you how to set up and administer a remote-proctored two-device exam with a file upload portion for handwritten work. Below is the step-by-step process in two parts for how to link your exam with the assignment, starting with creating the exam and then the corresponding assignment.
On Device 1, students take the exam/graded quiz using LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor.
On Device 2 (phone or tablet), students attend the Zoom meeting and take a picture of their handwritten work to upload to the corresponding Canvas assignment.
Tip: LockDown Browser does not allow for the file upload type question but you can have students upload handwritten work on the LDB Canvas Quiz. This is helpful for mathematical equations or essay responses.
Before you begin
Have your students review the instructions for the Environment Check and the prescribed workflow for the exam (example below).
- On Device 2 (phone), open Zoom to attend the Canvas Quiz meeting and get the access code. The Zoom meeting is where you will be live-proctored.
- On Device 1 (laptop), launch LDB+RM and take the exam. Write answers by hand as needed.
- On Device 2, take a picture of your handwritten work and upload it to the Canvas app as indicated. Submit the assignment in Canvas before time expires.
- On Device 1, return to the exam and click Submit Exam before time expires.
- Engage in the Zoom meeting until being dismissed.

Step 3 – Editing the Quiz Details
- Go to the LDB graded quiz and click Edit, then go to the Details tab.
- Add any additional details here including the suggested workflow for the file upload procedure and other important information.
- Click Time limit, then enter the total time limit for the quiz including an additional ten minutes for the Startup Sequence and file upload portion at the end. For example, for a 120-minute exam, you should allocate 130 minutes.
- When you’re satisfied with the quiz details and options, confirm the due date, then click Save. You will Save & Publish later after you create the questions.
Note: The due date and time of the ungraded quiz should correspond with the graded quiz.
- Click Edit at the upper-right hand corner.
Step 4 – Creating and Editing the Quiz Questions
- Click Questions, then click + New Question.
- Type in the question.
- For Question Type, select “Text (no question)” from the drop-down menu.
- Type the question text and click Update Questions when ready. Don’t click Save yet.
- Click + New Question to create as many No Text questions as needed.
Before you finish creating the questions, you must create the “Final Question” to link the exam with the assignment.
Important: The exam should have no points as the points will come from the file upload assignment.
Note: You can add various question types and have a combination of an assignment grade and the quiz grade, but they will all fall under the same Grade Group.
Step 5 – Creating the Final Question
- Type “Final Question” in the Title (this helps with the sorting).
- Click “Text (no question).”
- Fill in the text description with the proposed workflow:
- Do not click the “Submit” button yet.
- Go to Device 2 and take a picture of your work.
- Upload your work to “Canvas Graded Quiz File Upload” which is the corresponding Canvas Assignment – for example you can use “Midterm Exam File Upload”.
- After you submit your work on Canvas Assignments on Device 2 you can then return to Device 1 to submit in LockDown Browser. (You can name the corresponding assignment anything you like.)
- Stay in the Zoom test meeting on Device 2 until excused from the meeting. Thank you for your patience.
- Click Update Question, then click Save.
Next you will create the corresponding assignment in Canvas.
Part II: Creating the Corresponding Assignment in Canvas
There is great documentation on the Canvas Community regarding how to create an assignment in Canvas. We cover some basics here.
Step 1 – Creating a New Assignment
- Click Assignments on the left, then click +Assignments on the upper-right.
Step 2 – Assignment Name and Description
- Name the assignment with the “Canvas Quiz Name + File Upload”. For example, if you are administering a midterm exam, name the assignment “Midterm Exam File Upload”
- Type the details and directions in the text box.
Step 3 – Points and Grade Group
- Enter the total points for the assignment.
- You can choose to house this assignment under Graded Quizzes. For the Assignment Group, select “Graded Quizzes.”
Step 4 – Submission Type and Number of Attempts
- At Submission Type, select “Online” and check “File Uploads”
- At Submission Attempts, set Allowed Attempts to “Limited” and the Number of Attempts to 1.
Step 5 – Due Date, Assign To, Save and Publish
- Confirm that the Due date and Assign To are correct.
Note: Although the assignment should be due at the same time as the quiz, it needs to be submitted first. (Make sure to include this in your directions.)
For example, if the midterm exam ends at 3 p.m., the assignment should have a due date of 3 p.m. as well. However, the assignment will be uploaded first before the exam is submitted as the students are still being live-proctored with Respondus and Zoom.
- Click Save.
- When ready, click Save & Publish.
When you click Assignments again you will see the Midterm File Upload and Midterm Exam are in the Same Assignment Group, making it easier for grading or percentage grading by group.
When you click Grades you will see that the LockDown Browser + Respondus Monitor Canvas graded quiz and the File Upload assignment are right next to each other, making the Gradebook easier to navigate.
