Putting Education Reform To The Test

Send Us Your Stories About FCAT Problems

Some St. Johns County students had trouble logging in to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test online, according to the St. Augustine Record.

Florida is expanding the use of computer-based testing. The problems were with test contractor Pearson, school officials said. Pearson is being paid $254 million over four years to administer the FCAT.

But coupled with problems a science teacher and blogger found with practice material questions, it got us wondering just how many issues students, schools and teachers are having with the FCAT.

We’d like to hear your stories about what has worked and, especially, what is not or has not worked with the FCAT. Heard of any errors? Please post them in the comments, or email us at joconnor AT stateimpact.org. Well check them out and let you know what we find.
