I'm not sure if my question has been posted, so I'll add it here as well:

When answering FRQs for significance testing, I have allowed my students to either do calculations by hand, or use the calculator as long as they enter the function and identify the correct arguments for the test. If they entered the correct information (after checking conditions, etc), I accept the p-value and other info that is returned. I notice that some of the FRQ scoring guidelines indicate that 'proper mechanics' might mean showing the formula as well. Please help clarify so that I can advise my students correctly. Thanks!
