Important Updates

  • Testing Regulations

    Please review the following policies with your student before testing:

    Electronic Devices - If your student is found with ANY electronic devices, including, but not limited to cell phones and smart phones during testing, including breaks (e.g. bathroom, lunch), his or her test will be invalidated, meaning it will not be scored.  The best practice is for students to leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing

    Testing Rules Acknowledgment - All EOC assessments include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads, "I understand the testing rules that were just read to me.  If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated."  Prior to testing, test administrators will read the rules to students, and students must acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by checking a box next to the statement

    Test Invalidations - Students are responsible for doing their own work on the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others.  If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated.  In addition, the FLDOE employs a test security company, Caveon Test Security, to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns.  Student results within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated

    Leaving Campus - If your student leaves campus before completing the test (for lunch, an appointment, or illness, etc.), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test.  If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day.  Please also be mindful to not schedule appointments on testing days
