Getting Ready for an Exam?Just Press, Then Test!

  • The TI-Nspire enhanced Press-to-Test feature is designed to allow educators to quickly prepare the TI-Nspire handheld for exams.

  • How does it work? First of all, it disables user files so they are inaccessible during the exam. After the exam, the teacher can easily restore the student documents for classroom use.

  • Setting up the calculator & exiting Press-to-Test are both as easy (and able to be monitored) as 1,2,3.

TI-Nspire Device

  • Notice the flashing LED at the top end of the TI-Nspire handheld. It will be green if you checked “Limit geometry functions” and it will be amber/yellow if you unchecked that box.

  • During the rebooting process, there is also a red light combined with the green or amber light. Once reboot is complete, the red light goes away and the green/yellow continues to flash.

    SECURITY:

  • The flashing LED is hardware-secure and cannot be impacted by coded software.

  • The student cannot get out of this mode by removing the batteries or by resetting the device.

  • The student cannot change the keypad while in the Press-to-Test Mode, or they will get a dialog box to change the keypad back to the one where Press-to-Test was invoked.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does it lock out students abilities to get into other saved documents so they can’t, for example, have work previously saved or crib notes in a notes page?  

    Yes ‘My Documents’ are locked. (See the graphic to the right)

  • Is there a way to lock out certain features of the calculator.  For instance, on a TI-Nspire CAS, can I turn off CAS? Does this allow you to lock out features that you don’t want a student to use?

    You can limit the geometry features (Coordinate and Equations, Measurement, Construction, and Transformation)

    However, you cannot turn CAS off on a TI-Nspire.

  • Is there a way I can set up a document I want the students to use, and have only that document unlocked on the calculator?

    Not on version 1.3
