F-CAT Scores Released

TALLAHASSEE (by Rick Flagg and Alan McBride/FLA. NEWS NETWORK) -- The latest F-CAT scores are in and state Education Commissioner Pam Stewart says the kids are showing gradual improvement.
"Students throughout the state are continuing to make steady progress in all areas, reading, math and science, as we are transitioning to our more rigorous standards," she said.
Fifty-eight percent of the students got a passing score on the reading test... that's a point higher than last year.
Fifty-six percent passed the math test... no change there.
And the science scores were up slightly... 54 percent of the 5th grades and 49 percent of the 8th graders got a passing grade.
This is the last year for the F-CAT.
Stewart says she's proud of the work by teachers and thinks students will be prepared for the switch next year when Florida replaces F-CAT with a brand new set of exams.
