FCAT Norm-Referenced Test

FCAT Reading & Mathematics FCAT ScienceFCAT WritingFCAT Norm-Referenced Test Interactive FCAT District and School Reports

The FCAT Reading and Mathematics Norm-Referenced Test (NRT) was first administered in 2000, and since that time, Harcourt Assessment, Inc. (now Pearson Education, Inc.) has been Florida's NRT contractor. From 2000-2004, the FCAT NRT was the Stanford 9©.  The NRT portion of the FCAT from 2005-2008 was a custom form of the Stanford 10©, published by The Psychological Corporation (a division of Pearson). The reading scores were based on the Reading Comprehension subtest, and the mathematics scores were based on the Problem Solving subtest. From 2000-2008, allstudents in Grades 3-10 were required to take the FCAT NRT.

In 2008, Senate Bill 1908 removed the requirement that the statewide assessment program include norm-referenced component, and in a memo (PDF) dated June 17, 2008, the Department provided official notice of the removal of the FCAT NRT from the statewide assessment program. Beginning with the 2008-09 school year, the FCAT NRT will no longer be administered at any grade level.
