To keep students from calling each other while allowing communication between educator and student, we recommend that schools disable student calling via admin policy and utilize the Meet Now feature in the Calendar to connect with students.
If IT policy blocks students from using Meet Now, try enabling Supervised Chat in your institution so students can reach out the their educators over chat first to ask for assistance. Once the connection is made between educators and students over chat, then the educator can start a Meet Now as suggested above. Don’t forget to adjust the meeting options to ensure that the meeting can’t be used for unattended meetings after your conversation is done.

Thanks everyone for your feedback on this. As more educators look for ways to create secure assessments (especially remotely) this is one of the options we are investigating.
Thank you for your feedback. This feature is on the teams backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
