Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will take the FCAT 2.0 computer-based Reading Assessment, and students in grades 6 will take the FCAT 2.0 computer-based Math Assessment.  These students will have an opportunity to participate in a practice test (called an “ePAT”) at their school to become familiar with the software, item types, and online tools they will encounter and use during testing.  Grade specific practice tests and instructions (scripts) are currently available for download at www.FLAssessments.com/ePAT, if you or your student would like to review the CBT practice test at home.  Your student may practice as often as is necessary prior to testing.
If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (for lunch, an appointment, or illness, etc.), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.
