State Releases 2022 Florida Standards Assessment and End of Course Exam Results
Scores Show BCPS Students Make Significant Increases In the Majority of Tested Areas
On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, the Florida Department of Education released results for the Spring 2022 Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) for English Language Arts (ELA) grades 4 through10 and Mathematics grades 3 through 8. In addition, the state released results for End of Course (EOC) exams in Algebra I and Geometry.
Highlights for Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) for 2022 results include:
· ELA results for grades 4, 5, 6 and 9 show an increase of two or more percentage points for students scoring at level 3 (satisfactory) or higher.
· Mathematics results for grades 3 through 8 show an increase of five or more percentage points for students scoring at level 3 or higher, with grades 3, 4 and 8 increasing by 10 or more percentage points.
· Algebra I and Geometry EOC results show an increase of five or more percentage points for students scoring at level 3 or higher.
Additionally, these results show that the percentage of BCPS students scoring at or above level 3 met or exceeded the state average in 11 out of the 16 tested areas.
The state has not yet released results for science in grades 5 and 8 or EOC exam results for Biology, Civics and U.S. History.
“These are the first test results for students with 100% in-person learning since before the pandemic. We are excited by our students’ achievements and are proud of the dedication of our teachers, administrators and staff in ensuring our students have the resources and support necessary to succeed,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright.
“We will continue to analyze these results as we maintain our focus on accelerating learning and providing strategic academic interventions for our students.”
This is the state's final year administering the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). Beginning in the 2022/23 school year, the FSA will transition to the Florida Assessment for Student Thinking (FAST), which will be aligned with the new state standards, Benchmark for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.).
