Preparing for the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA)
In 2014-2015, Florida introduced new state tests to replace the FCAT 2.0 assessments. These are the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA).
Language and vocabulary skills are assessed on the test in two ways. The test includes language and editing tasks where students read short passages and identify errors or opportunities for improvement. These tasks make up between 15 and 25 percent of the questions. Language and vocabulary skills are also assessed as part of the reading comprehension tasks, with some of the questions following passages covering language and vocabulary use.
This book will prepare students for both types of questions, as well as ensure that students have the specific language skills that are assessed.
