State releases sample questions of FCAT replacement

Posted: Updated:
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Florida Department of Education launched a website that will give parents and teachers a sneak peak of the new test that is set to replace the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT.

The new Florida Standards Assessments will replace FCAT’s math, reading and writing exams and will be aligned to Florida's new Common Core academic standards.

The state launched the website on Monday afternoon. The site has sample tests for students in grades three through twelve. It is all to help parents and teachers get more familiar with the new tests before students have to take it next spring.

Jennifer Hartshorne, Deputy Communications Director, Florida Department of Education, told FOX 35:

“The Florida Standards Assessments online portal, available at, gives students, parents, educators and the general public to access to new resources including training tests,  draft test item specifications, draft test design summary/blueprints, and draft mathematics policies and materials. We will continue to add resources to the portal in our effort to help prepare Florida students for success.”

You can leave your thoughts on the new test on that website through September 5.
