I don't doubt that at all. Believe me, I was appalled when they announced the
"phase-in" grades. These are adolescents, and, adolescents being what they were
certainly took the easy way out - you get to use a calculator *and* only have to
make 50% to pass .... why worry?

I know more than one teacher who was shocked when they found that the calculator
really didn't do much good - and all year they were telling their students that
since they had the GodAlmighty calculator they didn't have to worry about the
test.
