The NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) provides achievement information for students in Grades 4, 8, and 12 in the areas of Reading, Mathematics, Writing, Science, History, Geography, Civics, Economics, Foreign Language, and the Arts. This assessment provides both state and subgroup (e.g., gender, ethnicity, ELL, ESE condition) information. Results are not provided on a student or school-district level.
Schools are randomly selected to participate in NAEP based on population diversity. Not all students within a selected school will be tested. For more information pertaining to NAEP, click here.
The FLKRS (Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener) is administered to all first-time Kindergarten students within the first 30-days of school. This assessment has two separate components, ECHOS (Early Childhood Observation System) and FAIR (Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading). These tests give Kindergarten teachers valuable insight into a child's strengths as well as important information to share with parents during conferences.
FLKRS is also administered to children who attended Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) and attend a non-public school (registered with FDOE) for Kindergarten.
