    • Students who are in grade forgiveness programs and wish to retake an assessment to improve their course grade.
    • Students who need to earn a passing score for a standard diploma with a Scholar designation (Geometry only).
    • Students in a credit acceleration program (CAP) who wish to take the assessment to earn course credit.


    Test Administration Information 

    • The FSA EOC assessments are delivered via a computer-based test (CBT) platform.
    • Paper-based versions (regular print, large print, braille and one-item-per-page) of CBT assessments are provided for students with disabilities who cannot access assessments on the computer as specified in their Individual Educational Plan (IEP) or Section 504 Plan.
    • CBT accommodations (e.g., text-to-speech) are available for students whose IEP or Section 504 Plan indicate these accommodations.
    • Each assessment is administered in two 90-minute sessions over two days.
    • Any student not finished by the end of each 90-minute session may continue working for up to half the length of a typical school day.
    • There are multiple test forms for each assessment, with a maximum of 68 items on each test form.
    • Students are provided CBT Work Folders for each EOC session.
    • A scientific calculator is provided as part of the CBT platform for Session 2 only of FSA EOC assessments. The calculator is available for practice here. Please see the Calculator and Reference Sheet Policies for Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) Mathematics Assessments for more information.

    Practice Tests 

    • Practice test materials allow you to become familiar with the various item types that will be encountered on the FSA, as well as the system, functionality and tools on FSA computer-based tests.

    • Computer-based and paper-based practice tests and answer keys for each assessment, as well as paper-based test item practice handouts, are available on the FSA Portal Practice Test page

    • Students should practice the technology enhanced items with the training tests - Hot Spots, Drag and Drop, Multi-select, Moveable Text, Table Response, & Equation Response.   


    Achievement Levels and FSA Scale Scores

    Student performance on Florida’s statewide assessments is categorized into five achievement levels. Table 2 provides information regarding student performance at each achievement level; this information is provided on student reports so that students, parents and educators may interpret student results in a meaningful way.

    Achievement Levels

    Level 1

    Level 2

    Level 3

    Level 4

    Level 5

    Inadequate: Highly likely to need substantial support for the next grade

    Below Satisfactory: Likely to need substantial support for the next grade

    Satisfactory: May need additional support for the next grade

    Proficient: Likely to excel in the next grade

    Mastery: Highly likely to excel in the next grade
