FSA Information and Practice Sites

 

With the new Florida standards in place to help Florida students succeed, the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) in English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, and end-of-course (EOC) subjects (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry) will serve Florida students by measuring education gains and progress. Students, parents/guardians, and educators are encouraged to stay connected to the FSA Portal to receive important announcements and access information and resources as they are available.     

The Statewide Science Assessment will still be administered to students in grades 5 and 8, and FCAT 2.0 Grade 10 Reading Retake will be available for students with this requirement. Information about the previous FCAT 2.0 assessments (reading, writing, and mathematics) is available at FCAT 2.0 Historical.      

The FSA Portal provides resources for students, parents, educators, test administrators, school assessment coordinators, district assessment coordinators, and technology coordinators. Some of the resources available include: 

  • Training tests are provided for users to become familiar with the computer-based system, functionality, and item types; the tests are not intended to guide classroom instruction. (A training test guide and training test answer keys are also available.)
  • ELA Text-Based Writing Rubrics are also available to define how points will be given within each domain.  
  • Test item specifications define the content and format of the assessment and test items for each grade level and subject. 
  • The test design summaries and blueprints for ELA and for mathematics provide more detailed information about the assessments, including the percentage of items in each content category, cognitive complexity, and approximate number of test items.
  • The mathematics policies and materials document describes policies and materials specific to the mathematics assessments, such as calculators and reference sheets.
