Setting Higher Standards for our Students

I released a statement today to let people know of the FCAT 2.0 standard setting process currently underway in Florida. In it I highlighted the fact that committees of teachers, superintendents and business leaders have spent numerous hours over the past several weeks providing feedback on how Florida should report Achievement Levels for our students’ performance on statewide assessments. They offered their feedback; now we are looking for yours. 

You have the opportunity to provide your thoughts on what each grade level’s test scores for expected achievement should be as we continue our work together to improve educational outcomes for all students. To participate in this rule development process, please visit our webpage at https://app1.fldoe.org/rules/default.aspx. Once the feedback period concludes, our next step is to present a recommended rule to the Florida State Board of Education in December for their approval. 

Establishment of these new Achievement Level cut scores is essential in our work to raise expectations for our students and adequately prepare them for the jobs of today. We look forward to hearing from you!

  1. That’s too low…standards should be 2.5 at least.
