Florida is the lead state in a consortium of 12 states working toward common assessments. The vision for the consortium states is to collaborate to build common formative, interim and summative assessments.

Departures from Floridas current statute would require legislative change before adopting assessment programs that vary from current law. Decisions on the direction of future assessments should be clearer after the first Race to the Top award in the coming months, as well as the end of the legislative session in early May.

8 Victoria Ash and Vince Verges, FDOE FCAT II Reading Tests, Grades 3 – 10 Multiple-choice items only. Multiple-choice items only field test items are written to measure 2007 standards field test items are written to measure 2007 standards tests will use items from the field test that are the most closely aligned with the draft 2009 standards and Common Core tests will use items from the field test that are the most closely aligned with the draft 2009 standards and Common Core. Mostly non-copyrighted texts, including public domain materials (e.g., The Bill of Rights, Twain, O Henry, etc). Mostly non-copyrighted texts, including public domain materials (e.g., The Bill of Rights, Twain, O Henry, etc). More cognitive rigor. More cognitive rigor.

10 Victoria Ash and Vince Verges, FDOE Sample Grade 8 Reading Item Which person is most likely to have a viewpoint that most differs from that of the authors of the article and poem? A. an ecologist who studies the effects of wolves on habitats B. a congressman who helped pass laws associated with wolves in the wild C. a rancher whose cattle might be affected by wolves on open rangelands * D. an American Indian who believes in preserving important pieces of the past Requires students to synthesize details across the two texts and then generalize beyond the texts. Two of the points of view have explicit ties to the texts, while two do not. The correct answer is one of the latter. The options require some prior knowledge; the assumptions are reasonable; and the options provide enough contextual explanation if students are not familiar with certain terms.
