The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of graphing calculators on assessment performance. The measurement tool was the Unit 4A Curriculum Embedded Assessment created by the Baltimore County Public Schools, Office of Mathematics. The researcher hypothesized between two groups, those who used graphing calculators and those who did not, that there would be no difference on the unit assessment. At the conclusion of the study, the null hypothesis was confirmed. Research in the area of graphing calculator usage in mathematics classrooms for assessments should continue to be reviewed and improved upon in future studies. This research can then be applied to students in mathematics classrooms across the country.
