Regression inference and the AP Test

I've just finished wading through Chap. 9-1 of IPS on Inference for
Regression. I too am wondering just how deeply the AP Test is expecting
students to go on this. The TI-83s don't do these calculations easily like
the t- and z- tests. Will the kids have to compute all these nasty
squares-of-sums etc?

It seems to me that the kinds of questions they will ask might be related
to computer output such as is seen in IPS on p. 644, p. 645 and 651. In
other words, interpret the results rather than do the actual calcuations.
What do others think? Can we get some direction from the AP board as the
fateful May 6 day approaches?

Thanks
