Readiness Test (PERT)
1


Requires high schools to evaluate collegereadiness of students before grade 12
High schools began to administer the PERT in
fall 2011.
◦ Other approved assessments that can be used to
demonstrate readiness are ACT, SAT, Accuplacer
(CPT)

Students who do not meet college ready
scores will be required to complete
postsecondary preparatory instruction before
high school graduation.
2
Students are considered college and career
ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and
academic preparation needed to enroll and
succeed in introductory college credit-bearing
courses within an associate or baccalaureate
degree program without the need for
remediation. These same attributes and levels of
achievement are needed for entry into and
success in postsecondary workforce education
or directly into a job that offers gainful
employment and career advancement.



PERT is Florida’s common placement test. It
is used by all 28 Florida colleges and all
public high schools to determine if a
student is ready for college credit courses
in reading, writing and math.
The PERT has been aligned with the
Postsecondary Readiness Competencies
(PRCs) identified as necessary for success
in entry-level college credit coursework.
4


The Postsecondary Readiness Competencies
(PRCs) are skills identified by high school,
college and state university faculty as
critical to college readiness in mathematics,
reading and writing.
PRC’s are true assessments of what
students need to know before enrolling in
ENC 1101 and MAT 1033




PERT testing window starts Oct. 28, 2013
and goes to May 30, 2014

school hours, before school and after
school but must always be administered
by certified school personnel.
(McCann Help Desk is open on Saturdays
