Students begin FCAT 2.0

By on April 11th, 2011

Students will take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test for four days beginning today (4/11). The rebooted FCAT 2.0 is designed to evaluate skills students should be able to master under new state standards. Alachua County Schools Spokeswoman Jackie Johnson says the main priority for teachers in Alachua County is to prepare students to compete at the state standard level.

“We don’t teach to the test, what we do is teach to the benchmark, those are the state standards in every grade level and and in every subject, and that’s what our teachers teach to, and what our students prepare for.”

The new curriculum standards for 2011 are almost the same in number as the previous set of curriculum benchmarks.
