Calculators may be used on any MS-CPAS test. The MDE’s guidelines for calculator use on standardized tests
state that if using OSA approved graphing calculators, any formulas, applications, and / or programs must be
cleared from the calculators before the assessment. Procedures for how to handle this issue should be outlined in
the District Test Security Plan as this has been the policy since the 2011-2012 school year.
The RCU recommends that districts not allow students to use the calculators built in to the operating systems on most
computers as this is a test security issue.
