How do I use the TI TestGuard App to delete variables, programs, and applications from a student's calculator?

The TI TestGuard App is a tool that teachers can use to gain more control over what data, programs, and Calculator Software Applications (Apps) are on students' TI graphing calculators during class time and tests.

The TI TestGuard App deletes programs, lists, applications, and other stored data from a student's calculator. Teachers also have the option to leave specific Apps on student calculators.

TI-83 Plus family
TI-84 Plus family
TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition
