The table below provides School performance data for FCAT Reading, Mathematics, Writing and Science. Students that score Achievement Level 3 and above in Reading, Mathematics or Science are considered on grade level, proficient, or advanced. As of 2011, certain FCAT assessments are no longer administered. In their place are new assessments called FCAT 2.0, which are aligned to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. This transition began in 2011 with FCAT 2.0 Reading (grades 3-10) and FCAT 2.0 Mathematics (grade 3-8) assessments. A comprehensive mathematics assessment is no longer administered to grade 9 students. The only FCAT assessments administered in 2011 are FCAT Mathematics (grade 10), FCAT Science (grades 5, 8, and 11), and FCAT Writing (grades 4, 8, and 10). FCAT 2.0 results are not reported in this database. They may be accessed in Excel spreadsheets found at http://fcat.fldoe.org/mediapacket/2011/default.asp.For the FCAT Writing essay, the table provides the percent of students scoring 3.5 and above for the years 2002-2009, and the percent of students scoring 4.0 and above for the years 2010-2011. In May 2011, the State Board of Education increased the proficiency level used for school grading purposes to a 4.0. When reviewing FCAT Writing results from 2010 and beyond, comparisons to previous years’ writing scores should be avoided. This caution is given for two reasons. First, beginning in 2010, each essay was scored by one rater. In previous years, two raters were used and the scores were averaged. A student could have received a half-point score, such as 4.5, whereas since 2010, no half-point scores are possible. Second, beginning in 2010, each student within the same grade level was required to write an essay using the same mode of writing (narrative, expository, or persuasive). In previous years, there were two modes assessed at each grade level with half of the students responding to each mode. For example, the 2010 Grade 4 FCAT Writing required all students to write a narrative essay. In 2009, half of the students wrote a narrative essay, and half of the students were required to write an expository essay.

The table below provides the School mean Scale Scores in Reading, Mathematics, Writing and Science. The Scale Score is a score used to report test results on the entire test. Scale Scores on the FCAT Sunshine State Standards tests range from 100 through 500 for each grade level and content area. A computer program is used to analyze student responses and to compute the Scale Score. As of 2011, certain FCAT assessments are no longer administered. In their place are new assessments called FCAT 2.0, which are aligned to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. This transition began in 2011 with FCAT 2.0 Reading (grades 3-10) and FCAT 2.0 Mathematics (grade 3-8) assessments. A comprehensive mathematics assessment is no longer administered to grade 9 students. The only FCAT assessments administered in 2011 are FCAT Mathematics (grade 10), FCAT Science (grades 5, 8, and 11), and FCAT Writing (grades 4, 8, and 10). FCAT 2.0 results are not reported in this database. They may be accessed in Excel spreadsheets found at http://fcat.fldoe.org/mediapacket/2011/default.asp.

Note: FCAT Writing+ was administered from 2006 – 2008. In 2009, the multiple-choice items were removed from the statewide writing assessment; therefore, the test name was changed back to FCAT Writing, and Scale Scores are no longer reported for the statewide writing assessment.

The table below provides the School average Developmental Scale Score (DSS) in Reading and Mathematics for FCAT and the change in DSS score since last year. The DSS is a score used to determine a student's annual progress from grade to grade. The FCAT Developmental Scales for Reading and Mathematics range from 86 through 3008 across grades 4 through 10.

Note: Matched DSS data cannot be generated for grade 3 because it is the first year that students take the FCAT.

The tables below provide a School summary of FCAT Reading, Mathematics, Writing and Science, including the percent of students scoring in each Achievement Level. For FCAT Reading and Mathematics, the data include the number of students tested, mean Scale Scores, mean Developmental Scale Scores, and the percentage of students scoring in each achievement level. There are five categories of achievement that describe the success students have with the content tested on the FCAT Reading, Mathematics and Science. Level 5 is the highest, and level 1 is the lowest. Levels 3 and above are considered on or above grade level. Writing is assessed in grades 4, 8, and 10. Writing mean essay scores combined are the result of combining the average scores for each type of writing assessed, in years when multiple prompts per grade level were administered. When reviewing FCAT Writing results from 2010 and beyond, comparisons to previous years’ writing scores should be avoided. This caution is given for two reasons. First, beginning in 2010, each essay was scored by one rater. In previous years, two raters were used and the scores were averaged.
