DRAFT CALCULATOR POLICY FOR FSA
MATHEMATICS ASSESSMENTS
• A scientific calculator is embedded
on certain questions of the
assessment relating to specific
standards. This is different from the
four function calculator previously
used on Algebra I EOCs and FCAT.
• This calculator can be accessed from
the FSA online portal for classroom
use.
