The Florida Department of Education is forging ahead with its plan to issue and use Florida Standards Assessment results this fall, releasing its explanation of how student test reports will look when they’re published.
Students will be assigned a T-score and a percentile rank for each of the exams they took. These are intended to show how children did in comparison to others who took the same test.
Percentile ranks will appear on the reports that teachers, parents and students receive. The T-scores, on which the percentiles are based, will be used for the state’s online reporting system.
