We have an incoming grad student to our music department, who is presenting as on the spectrum as well as a dx of dysgraphia. He wants to use one of two softwares for his composing and other courses for notetaking and homework projects. He has raised the concern that he feels the programs might be open to him cheating on exams because of some of the on-board tools (like music recognition after putting in a few notes of the score). He is concerned he won't be able to use the software for exams.

I know nothing about the software and wondered if anyone has experience with it, and can provide a bit of guidance. There are still a lot of questions I'm asking on my end, so I can get a clearer picture of what exactly may be needed by the student, but in the meantime, wanted to see if anyone had worked with either of the softwares before.

They are www.musescore.com<http://www.musescore.com> and www.sibelius.com<http://www.sibelius.com>

Thanks in advance for any information.
