The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® is administered to students in grades 3 - 11, approximately 200,000 students per grade level. The FCAT measures the Sunshine State Standards in reading and mathematics (grades 3-10), science (grades 5, 8, & 11), and writing (grades 4, 8, & 10).
This 2010-2011 school year, Florida's statewide assessment programs will begin transitioning to assessing student understanding of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standardsthrough the implementation of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® 2.0 (FCAT 2.0) and Florida End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments. Selected grades and subjects will continue to participate in FCAT assessments until the transition is complete. To learn more about this transition and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, or to research the assessment(s) your child may be taking, visit the newly created Success Measures website.
Welcome to the newly created Success Measuresweb page. We understand that as Florida's assessment program grows beyond the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test ® (FCAT), Florida's parents and students need an up-to-date resource for all their assessment questions.
Through the new Success Measureswebsite, parents, students and teachers can access in-depth information about all of Florida's student assessments in a timely and meaningful way.
The Success Measures page will continue to be updated with important information on Florida's assessment programs including details on what your children are being taught in our classrooms and how their learning will be assessed.
