Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test

Checks for knowledge of:

  • Understanding What You Read

  • Analyzing Primary Source Information

  • Comparing and Contrasting

  • Main Idea, Details and Patterns of Organization

  • Gathering, Analyzing and Evaluating Information

  • Synthesizing Information and Drawing Conclusions

  • Recognizing Cause-and-Effect Relationships

  • Narrative Writing

  • Oral Presentation of Research


Understanding What You Read & Analyzing Primary Source Information

Benchmarks and Standards

LA.A.1.3.1LA.A.2.3.6LA.A.1.3.2 MA.A.1.3.1 LA.A.1.4

LA.A.1.3.3LA.A.2.3.5LA.A.2.3.7 LA.A.2.3.8 LA.A.2.4

  • In the Science Fair process students must prepare a complete bibliographic search on their topic.

  • It can be established that they understand what they read by providing a written summary of the article including knowledge gained and article authenticity.


Comparing and Contrasting

Science is always changing and through that change discovery is made.

  • Comparison and Contrast are key elements in any scientific experiment.

  • Students observe similarities and differences between their control and experimental groups. In turn, correlating those changes with their variables.


Main Idea, Details and Patterns of Organization

  • During an independent science research project students must select a main idea of study. As they read their selected references they can make notes of any supporting details, i.e..

    • Previously performed experiments on their topic

    • Appropriate dates or people involved

    • Results obtained

  • Patterns of Organization come into play as students begin to realize the actual steps of their experimentation and through trial and error reassess their procedure.

  • Benchmarks and Standards

    LA.A.1.3.4 LA.A.2.3.2 LA.B.2.4 LA.A.2.3.1 LA.B.2.3.1


    Gathering, Analyzing and Evaluating Informationthrough the Scientific MethodBenchmarks and Standards


    Recognizing Cause-and-Effect Relationships

    Benchmarks

    MA.D.1.3.2SC.H.1.3.5SC.H.1.3.7

    • Through the careful analysis of data, students should be able to recognize the presence or absence of cause-and-effect relationships.


    Throughout the entire scientific process students are required to assimilateinformation gained from various sources:

    Their current experiment

    Related current articles

    Interviews with professionals

    Previous experiments

    Past experiences

    Students may then draw their own conclusions by considering the following:

    Hypothesis

    Data

    Results

    Information

    Common sense

    Synthesizing Information and Drawing Conclusions

    Benchmarks and Standards

    MA.B.1.33 MA.D.1.3.1 MA.E.1.3.3 MA.E.3.3.2 ME.E.3.4

    MA.B.1.34 MA.D.2.3.1 MA.E.2.3.2 MA.E.1.4

    MA.B.33.1 MAD3.1.3.1 MA.E.3.3.1 MA.E.2.4


    Narrative Writing For a Science Project

    Benchmarks and Standards

    LA.A.1.3.3LA.B.2.3.3

    LA.B.1.3.1LA.D.1.3.1

    LA.B.1.3.2LA.D.2.3.7

    LA.B.1.3.3LA.B.1.4

    • Students learn to communicate their findings so that their research may be shared and repeated

    • As a learning tool, students learn to communicate so that they may attain funds for research in the future


    Oral Presentation

    Benchmarks and Standards

    LA.C.3.3.1LA.D.1.3.3LA.D.2.3.2LA.D.2.3.5 LA.D.2.4

    LA.C.3.3.3LA.D.2.3.1LA.D.2.3.4LA.C.3.4

    • Students have the opportunity to present their original experimental research with professional scientists at Science Fair Competitions.

    • Orals presentations develop poise and confidence in students.

    • Oral presentations develop organizational skills that may be used in all areas of adult life.


    Why Science Fair?

    • Science Fair is the real application of scientific principles and techniques, not just reading about what someone else did in a book.

    • Teachers, their schools and students deserve recognition for all their hard work and dedication to the promotion of science education in the community.


    Why Science Fair?

    • Science Fair brings FCAT to life (Reading, Writing, Math and Science) as well as integrates State and National Science Standards!

    • Student research promotes skills that are essential in the job force:

      *Teamwork* Honesty* Time Management

      *Responsibility * Discipline *Ethics

      * Organization Skills

    Benchmarks and Standards

    SC.H.3.3.1 SC.H.3.3.3 SC.H.3.3.2

    SC.H.2.4
