State unveils test to replace the FCAT

The state unveiled a website to explain the details of Florida Standards Assessments, or FSA, the standardized text that will replace the FCAT.

The website, www.fsassessments.org , has sample tests in math, reading and writing. The Florida Department of Education hopes the site will help familiarize students and teachers with the online testing format.

The site is designed to educate, but also receive feedback. Between now and Sept. 5, you can share your thoughts on the new test format.

It’s expected to draw some controversy because of its tie to the common core standards, which has led to lower student passing rates in other states.

The new text will debut next spring.
