Web Tool Wednesday - GeoGebra Exam Mode
Troy Kuhn 7:30 AM Web Tool WednesdayGeoGebra, a free mathematics modeling site, has added a new exam mode. The new GeoGebra Exam Mode allows you and your students to use the power of GeoGebra during exams alongside paper and pencil (ie like a graphing calculator) while restricting their access to the Internet and other software on their computers that should not be used during the exam.
GeoGebra's exam mode allows you to specify which GeoGebra tools can and cannot be used during an exam. Exam mode runs in full screen so that students cannot access other browser tabs while using GeoGebra during an exam. If a student does exit the full screen the top of the screen turns to make it easy for a teacher to spot when a student has exited full screen mode. GeoGebra keeps a log of when students start using exam mode, when the exit full screen, and when the re-enter exam mode.
Its works on Chrome, and can be accessed by going to www.geogebra.org/exam.
