I can field the first question about using both the Nspire and 84 key pad while at the Regents exam.

If a TI-Nspire is placed into Press-to-Test, you can not change the key pad during the exam. A message will appear to indicate that the keypad is not compatible with the testing mode.

This was to guard against students trying to get themselves out of testing mode and access other functionality while once the exam has begun.

I am sure both of these questions have been asked before but I wondered if anyone has asked SED or if they have just been answered by teachers on the listserv. Please indicate whether or not you have followed these practices and if you have contacted SED about them.

1.) Can students use both the TI-84 and TI-Nspire Keypads during the Regents?

2.) Can students bring their own scientific calculator as well as use a graphing calculator on the Regents?

Thanks for your help!
