If you live in the sunshine state, Florida, students will be tested by measuring education gains and progress with the new Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). Since the beginning of the school year, parents, teachers and students, have been working hard preparing for the FSA which students will take for the first time beginning in March. The math, reading and writing exam (reading and writing are combined as English language arts) is intended to measure how well students in third through eleventh grades understand Florida's Common Core-based standards. The standards outline what students should know at the end of each grade.
Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced a new test has been selected to replace the FCAT 2.0 exams for the school year 2014-2015. “The new assessment will measure each child's progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input,” said Stewart. “This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think.” “The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life,” said State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand.
