2017 calculator list approved, new model added

NCEES recently approved the calculator models that can be used during NCEES computer-based and pencil-and paper exam administrations in 2017. The models approved for last year remain on the list, but a new model has been added: Casio fx-991. The following is the full list of calculators approved for 2017:

  • Casio: All fx-115 and fx-991 models (Any Casio calculator must have “fx-115” or “fx-991” in its model name.)
  • Hewlett Packard: The HP 33s and HP 35s models, but no others
  • Texas Instruments: All TI-30X and TI-36X models (Any Texas Instruments calculator must have “TI-30X” or “TI-36X” in its model name.)

Limiting the types of calculators allowed in the exam room is one of the measures NCEES takes to protect the integrity of its exams.
