How many times have you heard parents and teachers gripe about the FCAT and blame it for students’ shortfalls? Such statements are complete misunderstandings about the FCAT.
“The FCAT itself is a highly reliable and valid assessment that effectively measures how well students know the subject matter they are expected to know for their current grade level and are expected to demonstrate competency of their subject matter prior to being “promoted”
“High quality teaching that focuses on the actual standards rather than teaching that focuses on the test itself is far more effective at helping students score at or above grade level on the FCAT. Despite its many critics, the FCAT has helped to increase accountability in our public school systems. Teachers should focus on the individual needs of their students rather than “teaching to the test” itself” states Matzirakis.
