FCAT - Most Children Score Below Grade Level
LABELLE, FL. -- Scores have improved a bit since the 2006 FCAT science test, but this year less than half of the state's public school students scored at or above grade level - 43% in fifth grade, 40% in eighth grade and 38% in 11th grade.
The department released FCAT Science Lessons Learned: 2003-2006 Data Analyses and Instructional Implications. The publication provides educators with detailed trend analyses of student performance on FCAT Science in Grades 5, 8, and 11. It includes summaries, observations, and statistical trends that provide a comprehensive study of student performance by grade.
