2013 FCAT WRITING & GRADE 3 FCAT RESULTS RELEASED
Lee County Public Schools Sees Increases in Student Achievement

Writing results of the 2013 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) were released today by the Florida Department of Education along with third grade FCAT Reading and Math scores. Scores for the District continue to be strong.

For school grading purposes, the State has raised the minimum passing score to 3.5 and above for the FCAT Writing Test. The improvement in writing made by Lee County’s students at all three grade levels (4th, 8th, and 10th) equaled or exceeded gains statewide. The most significant increase in Lee County was seen at 4th grade where the percent of students scoring at 3.5 or higher jumped from 49% in 2012 to 58% this year. The 8th grade percentages increased from 51% to 55%, while high school scores increased from 58% to 61%.

FCAT Writing, administered only in 4th, 8th, and 10th grades, assesses student skills in composition writing – specifically in the areas of writing focus, organization, support and conventions (grammar, spelling, etc.). Papers are scored on a scale from 1.0 to 6.0 with a score of 3.5 considered as meeting standard for the Florida A+ Plan (School Grading).

Third grade FCAT Reading scores also saw an improvement. In 2012, 59% of students scored at Level 3 or higher. This year, that percentage was 61%. On FCAT, there are five achievement levels with Level 3 considered scoring on grade level. Lee’s reading and math scores are among the highest of the largest districts in Florida.
