[family]Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT)

What is it? -- FCAT was designed to measure Florida students' achievement of the Comon Core State Standards. The test questions on FCAT are written to measure benchmarks from the Sunshine State Standards which identify what students are expected to know and be able to do in reading and mathematics. -- more information from the State of Florida's Dept. of Education: FCAT Home Page

How is FCAT different from other tests students take? -- First, FCAT is the only test administered in Florida schools that is specifically designed to measure the Common Core State Standards. Second, FCAT is designed to represent the kinds of tasks and activities that parents and teachers expect as part of good instruction. This is accomplished in FCAT mathematics and reading tests by the type of information that students encounter on the test and the kinds of questions that students answer. -- more information from the State of Florida's Dept. of Education: FCAT Home Page
