Results can be found in PDF format above.

Scores for students retaking the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test show less than a third passing the exam after being given another try.

Of the more than 22,000 12th-grade students retaking the FCAT
reading exam, 15 percent passed. Twenty-one percent of about 7,000
seniors passed a retake in math.

Passing both exams is required to receive a regular high school
diploma.

To pass students must score at least 1,926 points in reading and
1,889 in math. Those scores are at a level two out of five
achievement levels.

Retake scores for students in lower grades were slightly higher,
with 22 percent of 11th-grade students passing the reading retake
and 29 percent passing in math.

Scores for students taking the test for a first time will be
released later this year.
