Re: Timed Notebooks for Student Take-home examinations


Thanks Chris,

I was thinking along these lines:

Each notebook template would require a unique passphrase to open it. 
The passphrase request would be recorded and time-stamped.

The notebook template would be created through a cgi script which 
would use Encode[].

This wouldn't prevent students from sending their solutions to 
others, however.

Still looking for advice....
