Private, In-Person and Online Tutoring with Top-Ranked Tutors
The Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) is a test that assesses the progress of the students in the state of Florida concerning the state-set curriculum criteria, which evaluates the students based on high-order thinking skills. There are three main examinations under FSA: English Language Arts (ELA) Reading, ELA Writing, and Mathematics. Students in grades 5 and 8 additionally have to take the Statewide Science Assessment.
Table 1, given below, provides the details of the examinations, that are to be taken by each grade and how these exams are administered. PB Stands for Paper-based test, CB stands for Computer-based test. EOC indicates that the FSA exam is replaced by taking an EOC in class for Algebra 1 and Geometry students.
The scores from these assessments are used in various ways. Every school is given a grade from A-F based on how their students perform as a whole. This grade does not follow the students and is not used to evaluate them. However, it indirectly impacts students due to its role in determining funding and accounting for up to half of a teacher’s professional evaluation. Additionally, these assessment results can also be used to assess individual student’s performance in terms of both graduation readiness as well as school-based objectives, such as what applicants should be aware of at specific grade levels. This will tell teachers if they require to provide extra support to a student in a specific area and play a role in applying to gifted programs like IB, AP, or AICE.
The Miles Smart Difference
FSA Test Prep
It is highly recommended that students wishing to attend gifted programs take FSA prep classes. These classes not only review concepts that will be tested on the exam but also impart strategies students should use to determine the correct answer if they are unable to solve the problem outright. These strategies and skills have tremendous carryover value into a student’s daily Language Arts and math classes in addition to future assessments like the SAT/ACT.
Since every student is unique, we tailor each tutoring class to the specific needs of each student. Some students may be advanced in Mathematics but below average in Reading. Others may struggle in spotting grammar errors while excelling in describing the relationship between illustrations and the story. Similarly, students may be great at Math except for one or two concepts which they need reviewing. In these cases, tutors would adjust the focus of each class to highlight those specific areas. Each student learns differently, so our tutors aspire to help each individual student by assessing their unique pathways for learning and modifying their instructing to create methods for their students to absorb the material that works best for them.
We also offer group classes for FSA Prep.
