RE: Biggest bar exam disaster ever?

This message was originally HTML formatted. View in a HTML capable client to see the original version.\r\n\r\n This is very bad. But I remember one worse. In July 2007, the New York bar exam had a software glitch and lost all or part of the essays. Some were recovered, some were unrecoverable.

Exams and smart devices

An article in Above the Law today about smart watches got us thinking about exams:

Because Rick has made it a priority to take advantage of new technologies, it's not surprising that he's already incorporating a smartwatch into his firm's technology arsenal.

Not really about printing - but kind-of about printing

It's a good thing NM is far enough away from everyone else that I can't hear the groans from this question but I know some of the usual suspects are doing exactly that...
So I'm thinking about doing away with (law school-owned) networked printers and installing leased MFDs. We already have some leased KM MFDs in a key areas but we also have way too many personal and networked printers in our environment.

Exam software on Chrome Books

I have been using a Chromebook for a bit. It looks like a great solution for student computing. Cheap, no software hassles, and automatic backup into the cloud.

The one stumbling block is exam software. Is there any exam software for Chrome?
