About the Tests

  • In 2006-2007 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading and math and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science.
  • The FCAT Writing+ test replaced the former FCAT writing test given in grades 4, 8 and 10.
  • The FCAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida.
  • The FCAT has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest.
  • Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.
