FCAT Questions Available Online

(AP) - If you're looking to spend a little quality time with your children over their studies, you can now give them the FCAT at home.

The Florida Department of Education has placed another batch of questions from the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test online.

It's the second year the agency has released questions from previous tests to increase the transparency of the FCAT, which is used to grade students and schools.

Florida Education Commissioner John Winn says the Web site has new features that will let you check the answers right away and see how many students got the answer right last year.

Winn says having the FCAT questions online is a great tool for families and can give you an indication of your child's proficiency level, but he cautions that the questions are not a substitute for working with your child every day on skills.
