Silly question, but I was wondering, do fourth graders get to use a calculator on the math portion of the FCAT? Thanks!

In Louisiana students can use calculators on parts of the standardized tests, and there are parts they must do without calculators.

I know it's either yes or no for the entire test. I've suffered a lifetime of FCAT testing; however, it was so long ago I can't remember when I had a calculator and when I didn't. I'm tutoring a 4th grader and she said her teacher did not specify whether they would be provided a calculator or not. Her 5th grade brother informed me he took the math portion of the FCAT yesterday and did not have a calculator. For some reason I too am thinking that the elementary grades don't get a calculator either...

On the standardized test, some Michigan schools have to rely on the calculator as they do not teach times tables after the 3rd grade.
