Just a question for anyone who may have had a similar experience. My son took the ACT this week (for the third time) as a junior. This was the state provided test at his high school. Upon initial instructions, he was informed that he could not use a calculator that he brought (even though he had two different calculators that meet the guidelines as printed by ACT). He was told he would have to use a provided calculator (which was a basic four function calculator with no graphing capabilities). Does anyone in this group know if this is allowed under ACT guidelines? Seems to me that it takes away from the standardization of the test, and places these students at a disadvantage to students taking at other testing centers that "follow the rules". Any input would be appreciated. TIA
