FCAT

ST. LUCIE District (56)

The table below provides the percent of students in the district scoring 3 and above in FCAT reading, mathematics, and writing. Students that score in FCAT Achievement Levels 3, 4, and 5 in reading or mathematics are considered on grade level, proficient, or advanced. Students that score 3 and above on FCAT writing have scored at or above a minimally acceptable level. The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test is based on Florida's curriculum frameworks, the Sunshine State Standards.

The table below provides the district mean Scale Scores in reading and mathematics and the combined mean writing scores for FCAT. The Scale Score is a score used to report test results on the entire test. Scale Scores on the FCAT Sunshine State Standards tests are 100 through 500 for each grade level and content area. A computer program is used to analyze student responses and to compute the Scale Score.

The tables below provide a district summary of FCAT reading, mathematics, and writing scores separately for each grade assessed (3-10). For FCAT reading and mathematics, the data include the number of students tested, mean Scale Scores, mean Developmental Scale Scores, and the percentage of students scoring in each achievement level . There are five categories of achievement that describe the success students have with the content tested on the FCAT reading and mathematics. Level 5 is the highest, and level 1 is the lowest. Levels 3 and above are considered on or above grade level. Writing is assessed in grades 4, 8 and 10. Writing combined mean scores are the result of combining the average scores for each type of writing assessed. Students in Grade 4 write either an expository or narrative essay, whereas students in Grades 8 and 10 respond to an expository or persuasive writing prompt
