This red colored Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS was manufactured exclusively for the state of Ohio.
What is the red TI-30XIISR?
Texas Instruments has produced a red TI-30X IIS specifically for the state of Ohio to use for their Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT). The schools refer to it as the TI-30XIISR.
There is also a red unit available for Ohio schools that does not have the OGT logo. These are available through Copco, an instructional product dealer.

The Ohio Department of Education released in October 2008 newletter "The Ides of ODE" a nice (high-lighted in blue) statement:
|New OGT Calculators
The fall administration of the Ohio Graduation Test will begin on October 27, 2008. By now all school districts should have received their fall shipment of the new OGT Calculators. The new TI-30XIISR is the only calculator to be used on the OGT. The unique red color is to assist proctors in identifying the approved calculator.
The new calculators are believed to be more durable than their predecessor.

For sure did we research the “predecessor of the new OGT calculator” and found the Senario Model SC-121, a rebranded Karce KC-121.
