Does anyone have scripts to block access to spellcheck, calculator, grammar check during controlled assessments?

Could you not just restrict the programs users can run, and then get them to do the assessment in something like Wordpad? I've used this method with some old stand alone laptops which stuggle on the network, but can be used as a standalone machine for exams fine.

HI You could create path rules to the msspell3.dll for the spell check, calc.exe for the calculator and apply the settings to the user. I think you can stop the grammer through the office adm. I think the Msgren32.dll is the file for the grammar check. I have created exam users that are used for tests and so all the extra restrictions dont affect other people.

We use locked down GPOs to disable features or allow only certain products to run. E.G. Wordpad instead of MS Office. There is another thread covering common assessments somewhere.

+1 for just using Wordpad; similar enough interface to Word to not confuse anyone whilst completely lacking in all the cheating features like spell check. Remember: KISS.
