Secure Quizzing Tools in BOLT

Authenticate Your Results

Your instructor may require you to use some of the secure quizzing tools available in BOLT: Respondus LockDown Browser, Respondus Monitor, and Examity to take online quizzes and exams.


These tools are provided to give you flexibility to take your online exams online- without having to come into a classroom.

The use of these tools protects you, making your test-taking secure and aims to preserve academic integrity and the legitimacy of online learning assessments.

If your instructor is requiring you to use these tools, please follow any directions they give you.

You can find out more about these tools at

Did You Know... we have BOLT tutorials for you?

The BOLT Support team does more than answer questions about and resolve issues in BOLT. We also work with our supervisors to provide helpful support documentation and video tutorials on BOLT and its integrated tools.

BOLT Student Support page

Last year we helped update the Student Support pages so that you had the most up-to-date and accurate help documentation for BOLT possible. This year we are working on adding new docs and videos on some of the new features that have come to BOLT- Turnitin Feedback Studio, Audio and Video Note, and Virtual Classroom.

Do you need to know how to submit an assignment in BOLT? Set your notifications? What about how to join an online room for a class meeting?

If you want to know how to do things in BOLT, just go to our Student Support page at

We also have a YouTube channel with video tutorials for students and instructors! You can access the videos on the Student Support pages, but subscribing to our channel means you will see our new videos as soon as we release them!
