New Online Calculator in NCTest
Effective for the 2018-19 school year, the NCTest platform will offer a calculator feature for all calculator active sections on the EOG, EOC, NCFE, and the NC Check-In assessments. Handheld calculators will still be part of the materials distributed to students, allowing students to choose to use the online calculator, the handheld calculator, or both. The online calculator is embedded into the online tutorials and students may practice using the online calculator by visiting desmos.com and choosing one of the following options:
- grades 3-5 chose the "Four Function" button,
- grades 6-8 choose the "Scientific" button, and
- NC Math 1 and beyond click "Start Graphing" in red a the top of the screen.
