Quiz access rules: Safe Exam Browser quiz access rule

quizaccess_safeexambrowser
This quiz access rule plugin provides Safe Exam Browser 2.0 integration for Moodle.
Maintained by: Tim at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary Tim Hunt
for Moodle
2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6

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.

    Hello Tim,

    I am trying this plugin,but I got stuck at this part:

    "Once the plugin is installed, there is a new setting Allowed browser keys on the quiz settings form, in the Extra restrictions on attempts section. Here you can enter a list of keys, one per line. A browser key is a 64-character hex string, and the form validation verifies that the keys are like that, and that all the keys given are different."

    Where do I find that key?

    It comes from one of the configuration screens when you set up SEB 2.x

    Right. It is not finished yet.

    Basic support for SEB1.9 is in standard Moodle. You need to enable it under Experimental features in the admin menu, then you get a setting Browser security -> require SEB in the quiz.

    I remember looking at the Safe Exam Browser option in the past, but for some reason we decided to go with the Respondus Lock-down browser. Does the Safe Exam Browser do what the Respondus Lock-down Browser does now? I also know that it seems that sometimes when there are updates to the Windows software, that it would cause Respondus to give problems. How often is this product updated? Thanks for any information!

    Note, this is just the Moodle integration. If you want to know about the browser, you will get a more informed response if you post at https://sourceforge.net/p/seb/discussion/844844/
