GeoGebra Apps can be used in an Exam Mode, which provides three different levels of security to meet different needs. These include:

  • GeoGebra's own student-initiated exam mode
  • Teacher-initiated exam mode
  • Mobile Device Manager (MDM) initiated exam mode

With GeoGebra's Exam Mode, both teachers and students can benefit from the app's features during paper-based exams while ensuring that access to the internet or other software is restricted to prevent cheating.


The GeoGebra Exam Mode...

  • is integrated in the GeoGebra Math Apps.
  • runs on your mobile device without additional installations.

  • does not allow access to the Internet, the GeoGebra Website or files stored on the computer or mobile device.
