WHAT DO THE SCORES MEAN?
Achievement Levels
(1-5, Reading & Math)
•
•
•
Level 5 – This student has success with the most challenging content of the
Sunshine State Standards. A student scoring a Level 5 answers most of the test
questions correctly, including the most challenging questions.
Level 4 – This student has success with the challenging content of the Sunshine
State Standards. A student scoring in Level 4 answers most of the test questions
correctly, but may have only some success with questions that reflect the most
challenging content.
Level 3 – This student has partial success with the challenging content of the
Sunshine State Standards, but performance is inconsistent. A student scoring in
Level 3 answers many of the test questions correctly but is generally less successful
with questions that are the most challenging.

FCAT 2.0 Reading:
Examples of Increased Rigor
• Students will be asked more often to:
– use reasonable prior knowledge, such as gradeappropriate vocabulary
– make reasonable inferences that are not explicitly
text-based
– analyze information across a pair of texts, such as
making comparisons of main ideas

FCAT TESTING TIPS
for
PARENTS
How Can I Help My Child?
Don’t panic. We’ve been working
hard all year, for the FCAT and
BEYOND.
There is no “cramming” for the FCAT.
Having said that, here are
some useful suggestions.
FCAT TESTING TIPS
• Mark down test days on your calendar so you
and your child are both aware of testing dates.
• Make sure your child gets enough sleep on the
night before the tests.
• Make sure that your child gets up early enough
so that he/she will be on time to school.
• Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast
and avoid heavy foods that may make him/her
groggy and avoid high sugar foods that may
make him/her hyper.
• Encourage your child to do well and leave your
child on a positive note.
• Being anxious about your child’s test is
normal; however, help your child stay stress
free by remaining calm around them and by
avoiding conflict the morning of the test.
• Make sure your children leave their cell
phones and ALL electronic devices at home
because possession of a cell phone will lead to
invalidation of the test.
