Safe Mode protects test integrity by preventing students from downloading assessment content, triggering navigation warnings, disabling copy and paste, and hiding future assessments.

What does Safe Mode do?

  1. Disables copy/paste. With copy/paste unavailable, students cannot copy question text and copy into translators, nor can they copy text from an external source and paste as a written answer.

  2. Hides future assignments so students only see active, completed, and past due assignments.

  3. Disables submission review. Students cannot review their submission until a grade and/or feedback has been provided and published. (If safe mode is disabled, students can review their response prior to grades/feedback).

  4. Activates Student Navigation Warnings for single attempt questions, displaying a warning if the student navigates away from the browser page.
