FCAT Effects on School Grades

June 20

Inflated scores on Florida's standardized assessment test will largely be excluded from the calculation of Florida's A to F grades for schools.

The FCAT is the primary measuring stick used to give letter grades to the state's schools.

But officials have been struggling with a too-easy third grade reading portion of the 2006 test.

The state board of education approved a one-year change to its letter grade calculations, eliminating third grade reading results from the scoring in most cases.

    I really wish our governor would do away with teh FCAT altogether. because every child is not testing material. A lot of children are not good at testing, especially under peer pressure or stress.
