This quiz access rule was created by Tim Hunt at the Open University. It provides Safe Exam Browser 2.0 integration for Moodle. It can be used with versions 2.3.7 of Moodle, or later. (For Moodle 2.4, you should be using 2.4.4 or later.)

If you install this plugin, there is a new option 'Allowed browser exam keys' on the quiz settings form where you can enter valid keys for version of SEB that should be allowed to attempt the quiz. There is also a new capability 'Not required to use Safe Exam Browser'. Users with that capability (by default teachers and above) are exempt from the secure browser check.

    Hi,

    I want to use SafeExamBrowser. In the Quiz I can check "use Safe Exam Browser". So far, so good.

    But I read in the documentation:

    Use the Browser Exam Key authentication in Moodle for the connecting SEB version and its settings by installing the quiz access rule plugin in Moodle. In addition you will have to copy the Browser Exam Key hash code string into the quiz settings (Administration / Quiz administration / Edit settings / Extra restrictions on attempts / Allowed browser keys).

    I can not find the field where I can put in the hash code string.
    What's going wrong?

    Regards, Kees

    Have you installed this plugin, and are you using it?

    There was an old SEB integration built into Moodle, available under Admin -> Development -> Experimental -> Enable Safe Exam Browser integration. That is something different, and should no longer be used.

    Hi Tim, I was using Admin -> Development -> Experimental -> Enable Safe Exam Browser but then discovered this plugin, which I installed, and then unchecked Admin -> Development -> Experimental -> Enable Safe Exam Browser. However, in Administration / Quiz administration / Edit settings / Extra restrictions on attempts, there is no longer the option to use Safe Exam Browser, just a javascript popup. Do I need to reactivate Admin -> Development -> Experimental -> Enable Safe Exam Browser? Thanks.

    You don't need that experimental setting. You do need this plugin.

    I have the plugin installed but still can't see the option to use Safe Exam Browser in Administration / Quiz administration / Edit settings / Extra restrictions on attempts sad I'll post more in the Quiz thread for Moodle in English. Easier to post screenshots there.

    I have enabled https for logins in moodle, the rest of the site is http. This prevents the user from logging in with Safe Exam Browser though, as the configuration setting url is 'http'.
    Is there a workaround for this?

    Either: change the URL in the SEB configuration to match the URL of your site, or set up a redirect on your server from the http address to the https address.

    Hi Tim,
    Is there any way to disable this plugin for all? I mean even for students too? As you have suggested I tried editing return self:check_keys to "return true" in the check_access function inside rule file, "public static function check_access in mod/quiz/accessrule/safeexambrowser/rule.php". But still I've been showed with the error.
    I also tried disabling that experiment option inside site administration > Development > Experimental > Experimental settings even though its outdated. But still its not working.
    Thank you.

    You could try editnig the Authenticated user role, and assigning the quizaccess/safeexambrowser:exemptfromcheck capability.

    Hello Tim!

    First of all, I would like to thank you for taking time to develop this solution! I've been trying to set up a quit link so our students can quit SEB after finishing exams. I already entered a link on SEB's Configuration Tool but cannot find where to enter the link in Moodle. Actually, I can't find the way to modify the general feedback page that the students will get back after finishing the exams. I've looked for information on the Web but couldn't find any clue. Could you help me with this please? Is it something that I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can put the link where you like. A good place to put it is in the Overall Feedback for the Quiz, since that is shown after the attempt has been completed.
