Mathematics - ​Calculator Guidance

Calculators are important instructional tools that are allowable – but not required – for students in grades 6-12 to use while taking state tests. Students in grades 3-5 are only permitted to use a calculator if they qualify for a calculator as an accommodation. For students taking the computer-based tests, a calculator will be provided in the technology platform for the test. Students may use handheld calculators for either the computer-based or paper-based test formats and schools may permit them to bring their own handheld devices for test purposes.

An online calculator identical to the one students will use during online testing is available for practice on the Ohio's State Test Portal.
