I wonder if there's a way to make a page that pops up a dialog box for verification before *any* attempt to switch away to another page or even to switch to anything else on the computer.


I'm a teacher, and with the prevalence of cheating, giving online tests even right in the classroom just doesn't make sense to me since students can just switch over to another program or browser window and get the answers.  But if there were a way to give a test that once begun had to be either finished or aborted entirely before allowing the user to switch away, then I'd feel more comfortable with it.


Is that kind of thing possible?  Maybe a program that temporarily disables the "Alt" key in Windows and the "Command" key on a Mac?
