PARCC Allowable Calculators for Grades 3-5
Grades 3-5: No calculators allowed, except for students with an approved calculator accommodation (see below)
For students who meet the guidelines in the PARCC Accessibility Features and Accommodations Manual for a calculation device, this accommodation allows a calculation device to be used on non-calculator section of any PARCC mathematics assessment. Test administrators are not required to collect calculators for items measuring fluency.
If a student needs a calculator as part of an accommodation in the non-calculator section, the student will need a hand-held calculator because an online calculator will not be available. If a student needs a specific calculator (e.g., large key, talking), the student can also bring his or her own, provided it is specified in his or her approved IEP or 504 Plan.
