9th and 10th Grade 2012 FCAT Reading Scores Released

BREVARD COUNTY, Florida – The Florida Department of Education released the 2012 FCAT 2.0 reading scores for 9th and 10th grade from across the State of Florida today. The results for Brevard County Public Schools 9th and 10th grade 2012 FCAT 2.0 scores are posted at the end of this article.

“We are asking more from our students and teachers than we ever have, and I am proud of their hard work,” said Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. “Florida’s higher standards help ensure students are learning what they are expected to know so that they are prepared for college, career, and life. As Florida transitions to higher standards and higher expectations, we can expect our assessment results to reflect those changes.”

Florida is in transition to more challenging assessments aligned to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards as the state prepares for full implementation of Common Core State Standards and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments in 2014-15. Raising the standards along with the expectations of Florida’s students helps prepare them for the more demanding PARCC assessments designed to help them acquire the skills they need for tomorrow’s jobs and to be more competitive internationally.

Statewide:

  • 52 percent of students in grade 9 were performing at or above Achievement Level 3 (on grade level) on FCAT 2.0 Reading.
  • 50 percent of students in grade 10 received passing scores performing at or above Achievement Level 3 on FCAT 2.0 Reading (a decline from 60 percent in 2011 when the passing score was set within Achievement level 2).
  • 81 percent of students in grade 4 earned a score of 3.0 and above on FCAT Writing, compared to 78 percent in grade 8, and 84 percent in grade 10.
