Report Title

"Courses using Respondus"

Short Description 

This report allows a Canvas administrator to view a report of classic quizzes that have enabled the Respondus Lockdown Browser / Monitor.  At this time, New Quiz data is not available


This report searches courses within a specific Canvas subaccount and all of the subaccounts beneath it. The administrator must navigate to the subaccount they want to run the report for; the DLE Datasets tool takes its context from the subaccount you're in when you launch the tool.
