What are the Florida Standards? The Florida Standards were adopted in 2014 in English/LanguageArts and Mathematics to help prepare Florida students for successin college, career, and in life by emphasizing analytical thinkingskills. The FSA provides a more authentic assessment of the FloridaStandards than prior tests, in that students will be asked to creategraphs, interact with test content, and write and respond indifferent ways than on traditional tests. Question types will assess students' higher-order thinking skills inkeeping with the higher expectations of the Florida Standards.

Test Design - Writing FSA Writing (Grades 4-5)At elementary, the stimulus will consist of two to four texts, ranging from 800-1300words each. Scoring rubrics for FSA Writing can be found on the FSA Portal.§Overall Task Description Students will read a stimulus about a single topic. Stimulus should consist of informational or literary fiction or nonfiction texts and can covera wide array of topics. After reading stimulus, students will respond by providing information on a topic or take astance to support an opinion or argument.§Stimulus Attributes The stimuli for informative/explanatory prompts should maintain a clear topicalconnection but may address diverse concepts/ideas. The stimuli for opinion/argumentative prompts should present opposing points of view.Each point of view should be equally represented so that a student can take either side of aposition. Thorough and convincing support for the controlling ideas must be evident in all /answer-keys-paper/FSA 2018 4 Writing Practice-Test ts/answer-keys-paper/FSA 2018 5 Writing Practice-Test Rubric.pdf

Test Design/Scoring Grades 4-5 Writing component contributes 10 raw scorepoints to the overall FSA ELA total raw score.– The raw score is not the most important score when consideringa student’s overall performance. FSA, like other Florida statewide assessments past andpresent, is not scored using a percent-correct or numbercorrect scoring method. Students correctly answering themore-difficult items receive more credit than studentsanswering less-challenging items.In other words, the scoring model involves both the number andthe difficulty of questions a student answers correctly.

Florida’s Revised A Program The Florida Department of Education uses FSA and Scienceresults to evaluate each public school and each school district. School grades are determined through performance on theFSA English Language Arts (Reading and Writing combined),Mathematics, and State Science tests. Schools are required to test 95% of eligible students in orderto earn a school grade. The school grade is based upon the percentage of total pointsearned. Each component is worth up to 100 percentage pts.
