  • Electronic Devices
    • Possession of any electronic devices that reproduces, transmits, calculates, or records IS cause for invalidation.
      • “Possession” will be defined as “within arm’s reach,” even if the electronic device is not visible.
      • For example, students should not have cell phones in their pockets, clipped to their belts, at their desks, or anywhere it can be easily accessed during testing.

  • FCAT Forms
    • Missing Materials
    • Breaches of Administration
  • Testing Guidelines
    • If a student starts a session and leaves the building without finishing (for an appointment, illness, etc.), he or she will NOT be allowed to complete the session.
      • NO EXCEPTIONS will be made once the student leaves the building; therefore, if you have concerns about a student, you should not allow the student to begin.
      • Consider administering the test during one of the make-up days.
    • Test administrators must NOT administer the FCAT to their family members. Students who are related to their assigned test administrator should be reassigned to an alternate test administrator.
    • Test administrators are required to use ALL of the allotted time in each session and not end a session early.
  • PreID Label
    • Use the PreID label if the studentlast name, student number, district number, school number, and grade level are CORRECT on the PreID Roster, even if the other information is incorrect.
  • Test Group Codes
    • Test Group Codes will be used on SSS answer documents for Grades 5–AD.
      • School Coordinators will provide test administrators with test group codes that the FDOE will use to isolate testing anomalies to a specific group of students.
  • Comment Forms
    • Ensure that all school coordinators and test administrators review the online comment forms BEFORE testing so that their feedback will address the concerns of the FDOE and contractor.
