10 Summary of High School Accountability Assessments and High School Graduation Requirements The statewide assessment program will be changing over the next several years to phase in new assessments aligned to Florida’s newexpectations for student learning, known as the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. These new assessments will be named FCAT 2.0 andFlorida End - of - Course (EOC) Assessments. FCAT 2.0 will measure student achievement in reading (grades ), mathematics (grades 3 - 8), andscience (grades 5, 8), and the design of the assessments will be similar to the current FCAT. The Florida EOC Assessments will be very differentfrom the FCAT—students will participate in these assessments on the computer at the conclusion of specific high school courses. The followinginformation is provided to summarize the implementation schedule and how these requirements will likely impact students and schoolaccountability calculations.

ESEA does not allow for middle school students’ scores in high school courses to be used in determining AYP for middle schools. †Further discussion is needed on how best to include results for school grading without the presence of achievement levels.
