An exam-mode configuration allows you to temporarily disable features and commands on your students' HP Prime calculators for testing purposes. You can use Connectivity Kit to start or stop an exam-mode configuration on one or more HP Prime calculators.

To send an exam-mode configuration without activating it, select the exam-mode configuration from the content pane and then follow the instructions in "Distributing HP Prime content". You can also send an exam-mode configuration from one calculator to another. Select the exam-mode configuration on one calculator and drag it to the other calculator.
