Free Pilot and 200 Free Seats

A free 2-month pilot lets institutions try Respondus Monitor with no obligation. In addition, a college or university that licenses LockDown Browser receives a free 200-seat license of Respondus Monitor each year. Both options enable institutions to try Respondus Monitor with real courses, before having to choose a licensing option.

License for initial term

Flat Rate

The initial term is a flat rate with no limits on seat usage or exam sessions. This enables institutions to roll out Respondus Monitor and gauge interest across campus.

Licensing fee: $3950 (annual fee is prorated based on license start date.)

License options for subsequent terms

Tiered

After the first licensing term, many institutions opt for tiered licensing where seats can be purchased in increments of 1000. This option is ideal when expected use is in the low to moderate range, and growth is predictable.


Base tier (1000 seats): $3950

Additional tiers of 1000 seats can be purchased during the license term for $1950 each.

How is a seat defined?
A "seat" is one student per course where Respondus Monitor is used. If a course has four exams that use Respondus Monitor, only one seat is counted per student. If a student uses Respondus Monitor in two courses, it is counted as two seats.

 

Is there a limit to the number of exams in a course?
There are NO limits — period. A course can use Respondus Monitor with 3 exams or 30. The length of the exams doesn't matter either.

 

What if we exceed our seat limit?
We’ve got you covered. We'll watch seat usage along the way and let you know if it's getting close to your selected limit. You can also track usage yourself from within the administrator area of Respondus Monitor. If your seat limit is reached, the system will keep allocating new seats, providing extra time to arrange for the purchase of additional seats.
