State releases first scores from Spring 2015 FSA

 
The Florida Department of Education has released the first scores from the Spring 2015 Florida Standards Assessment. The results are reported by T-score and percentile rank for English Language Arts, Mathematics and EOC assessments. 
 
A T-score of 50 represents the mean. T-scores above or below 50 show deviations above or below the mean. The percentile rank shows the percentage of scores that fall within a given quartile.
 
Student score reports, describing how an individual student performed compared to other students statewide, are expected soon. They will be sent to schools for distribution to parents and students. The score reports will no longer include achievement levels 1 through 5 as they have in the past. New achievement level standards are expected to be set by the state Board of Education early next year. 
 
Members of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, including Lake County Schools Superintendent Susan Moxley, Ed.D., have stated they have lost confidence in the current accountability system and have recommended results from the spring 2015 FSA tests not be used to grade students, teachers and schools.
 
The chart below shows a comparison of Mean T-scores for Lake County students compared to students statewide. Attached charts show percentile rankings for all Florida districts.
