Florida students are achieving more than they were two decades ago because of a robust education accountability system. In 2014, the Florida Department of Education chose new statewide assessments to ensure accurate measurement of student knowledge. A newly-adopted school grading system will simply and clearly convey the achievement level of Florida’s schools and lead to improved student outcomes.
With the new Florida standards in place to help Florida students succeed, the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) in English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, and end-of-course (EOC) subjects (Algebra 1 and Geometry) will serve Florida students by measuring education gains and progress. Students, parents/guardians, and educators are encouraged to stay connected to the FSA Portal to receive important announcements and access information and resources as they are available.
