Regular practice- complex text & academic language Reading, writing, listening and speaking grounded in evidence from text Real-world applications Build knowledge through content-rich non-fiction text Deeper understanding of mathematical concepts Builds habits of mind of productive mathematical thinkers Real-world applications Modeling with pictures, technology, graphs, manipulatives LAFS (Language Arts Fl. Standards) MAFS (Math Florida Standards)
C HANGES IN S TUDENT E XPECTATIONS The Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) developed by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) demand students… maintain an increased sense of accountability toward their own learning develop a concept beyond an opinion and move to “support and evidence” think in a more conceptual, analytical and global manner utilize higher-order, critical thinking skills shift from mere memorization of terms to a deep understanding of meaning operate in a more student-centered environment with built in peer collaboration transfer skills to new experiences 5

S CORING State law requires 3 rd grade students to pass the reading portion of the FSA with a proficient score. The success a student has achieved with the Florida Standards will be assessed and is described by Achievement Levels that range from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). Level 3 indicates satisfactory performance. The level of performance required to score in each Achievement Level will be established prior to spring 2016 administration.
