TASC Test Calculators
Texas Instrument Model TI-30XS is the preferred calculator for taking the TASC test. The TI-30XS is a scientific calculator with trigonometry and logarithm functions, but no graphing functions. Graphing calculators are not permitted for use on the TASC test. Other scientific calculators may be approved but must have trigonometry and logarithm functions, but they cannot have graphing functions or any programming capability. To aid Examiners, if your state or area has approved the use of calculator models other than the Texas Instrument Model, Test Coordinators should maintain a list of the approved models and train Examiners how to check that the calculators meet requirements.
