The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores were released June 6 and
Mean scale scores are the average scores used to report test results on the entire test.
Bill Emerson, assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction and assessment for the Santa Rosa County School District said in an email that hard work was put into keeping FCAT scores near the top.
Another piece of good news for the county this year is the faster release of the test scores. Last year, the company responsible for administering the test, NCS Pearson, had difficulties meshing their databases with the county databases.
Results were not released until the end of June, making the effort to schedule the next school year a much faster process than normal. The earlier release of test scores will give the school district more time to plan for next school year.
