FCAT Writes! Information

10th grade students will be taking the grade 10 FCAT 2.0 Writing Test on Tuesday, February 25, 2014.  The FCAT 2.0 Writing Test is administered in one 60-minute session in which students write an essay in response to a prompt.  Later this spring, your student will receive a score for his/her writing on a scale from 1-6 score points.  You may visit http://fcat.fldoe.org/writing-prompts.asp to access writing prompt descriptions and scoring guides with sample essays.
 
Please review the following policies with your student before testing:
 
Electronic Devices—If your student is found with ANY electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones and smart phones, at any time during testing OR during breaks, his or her test will be invalidated, which means it will not be scored. The best practice is for students to leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.
 
Testing Rules Acknowledgment—The Writing test includes a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads, “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Prior to testing, test administrators will read the rules to students, and students must acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by signing their names under the statement.
 
Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they sign the acknowledgment reads, “After the test, you may not discuss the Writing prompt with anyone. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on websites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.” If students are found sharing information about test items, even without the intent to cheat, their tests will be invalidated.
 
Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing the test (for an appointment, illness, etc.), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on the make-up day. 
 
If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Nora Light at nlight@pasco.k12.fl.us. For more information about the statewide assessment program, visit the FDOE website at http://fcat.fldoe.org/
 
Thank you for supporting your student as he or she prepares for the test.
