Florida Standards Assessment
The Florida Standards, adopted by the State Board of Education after unprecedented public input and review, will prepare Florida students for success in college, career and in life by emphasizing analytical thinking. The new test will provide a more authentic assessment of the Florida Standards, because it will include more than multiple choice questions. Students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content and write and respond in different ways than on traditional tests. Question types will assess students’ higher-order thinking skills in keeping with the higher expectations of the Florida Standards. Students, educators and parents are able to preview samples of new question types by taking practice tests that will be made available for anyone interested in reviewing them.
