Private, In-Person and Online Tutoring with Top-Ranked Tutors
The FSA, or the Florida Standards Assessment, is a test that assesses the progress of the students in the state of Florida concerning the state-set curriculum criteria, which evaluates a student based on high-order thinking skills. There are three main examinations under the 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
While we employ a variety of methodologies and strategies, we emphasize the Socratic method (a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking) as it helps students think logically to find the answer. This method of teaching has future ramifications as it carries over to future classes and helps develop self-reliance amongst students.
