Schools that require laptop use for tests?
« on: March 15, 2006, 07:35:52 PM »
I visited Temple recently and was surprised to learn that they require professors to allow laptop use for tests. They use a program they bought that facilitates centralized, anonymous grading of electronic exams. How common is this? Do most schools require that you be allowed to use a laptop to take exams?

It is very important to me because writing out huge tests was one of my biggest problems in undergrad.

Aerst, I am with you, I cramp up after 15 mins of handwriting. My mind is moving but my hand can't lol

Add BU to the list.  I'm not sure if they use ExamSoft though, but the way my tour guide described it, most likely they do.
