FCAT scores to be released Friday

Posted by Sheli Muniz - email

TALLAHASSEE (AP) - Florida school grades are being released more than a month later than usual. The grades are coming out Friday.

The first delay was when a contractor was late in getting the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scored. The second delay was because some school districts challenged the results. The FCAT is the basis for the grades used to reward top schools and correct failing ones.

Eduation Commissioner Eric Smith on Wednesday announced independent experts had confirmed the accuracy of the test results. They show progress in elementary grades has slowed and that low performing students are having difficulty making learning gains.

A record 62 percent of Florida's public schools last year received an A.
