NCEES enhances examination security.

Beginning in April 2004, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) has begun strictly enforcing materials that are allowed in examination rooms. Calculators with communication or text editing capabilities will be banned from all NCEES exam sites. These include, but are not limited to, the following models:

Hewlett Packard, HP 48GX (communicating and text editing); Hewlett Packard, HP-49G (text editing); Texas Instruments, TI-83 Plus and TI-83 Plus Silver Edition (text editing); Texas Instruments, TI-89 (text editing); and Texas Instruments, TI-92 and Voyage 200 (text editing and QWERTY keypad).

NCEES Exam Policy 15 prohibits devices or materials that might compromise the security of the examination or examination process. It has been determined that certain models of calculators might have been previously allowed in NCEES examination sites that provide communication capability through the use of infrared technology or through the use of cards that enable communication via radio transmission. In many cases these models may also afford a text editing capability that enables the user to enter and store information in the calculator's memory.
