FSA Information

  • FSA

    Florida’s K-12 assessment system measures students’ achievement of Florida’s education standards, which were developed and implemented to ensure that all students graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life.

     

    Assessment supports instruction and student learning, and test results help Florida’s educational leadership and stakeholders determine whether the goals of the education system are being met.

     

    Please visit the Florida Statewide Assessments website for practice tests to become familiar with layouts and item types on the assessments.

EOC Information

  • Understanding Florida EOC Assessment Scores

    EOC assessments are computer-based, criterion-referenced assessments that measure the Florida Standards (FS) or the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) for specific courses, as outlined in their course descriptions.

     

    Biology 1, U.S. History, and Civics are all aligned to NGSSS and will continue to be administered for students completing applicable courses.  All students completing applicable Algebra 1 or Geometry courses in 2014-15 and beyond will take the FSA End-of-Course Assessment.

     

    To learn more about the content of the EOC assessments, individuals may review the standards for the subject area (NGSSS or FS), the description of the course for which the EOC assessment is required, and the test item specifications. EOC assessments measure student achievement of Florida's standards as outlined in course descriptions. The standards and course descriptions specify the expectations for student learning in Florida and provide the basis for the content that will be measured on each Florida EOC assessment. The test item specifications provide information regarding the content and format of the assessments.

     

    Please see the Florida Department of Education website for more information regarding End-of-Course Assessments.
