Test preparation

The Press-to-Test feature for TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handhelds is a fast way to configure student handhelds on exam days. Using a special key sequence on TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handhelds, the built-in Press-to-Test feature temporarily blocks access to certain features not allowed during testing. The temporarily disabled features can be easily restored after the exam for continued use during classroom lessons and activities.

The Press-to-Test feature also works with the TI-Nspire handheld's interchangeable TI-84 Plus Keypad.

Download the latest TI-Nspire operating system that includes the new Press-to-Test feature.
