As graphics calculators become more accessible, issues of assessment will become more important. The main reason for this is that graphics calculators provide students with significant mathematical capabilities, some of which are described here. Some of the issues that need to be addressed in formal assessment are identified. These issues include the appropriateness of some traditional kinds of questions, the significance of programming, the relevance of differences between calculators, the desirability of assessing efficient calculator use and the need to consider what students should be expected to record in an examination.
