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

Understanding What You Read & Analyzing Primary Source Information

Benchmarks and Standards

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

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

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.

    Recognizing Cause-and-Effect Relationships

    Benchmarks

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


    Synthesizing information and drawing conclusions

    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

    • 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

    • 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

    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 fair1

    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
