FAST ELA Progress Monitor Test, Grades 9-10

On Tuesday, December 6th, all 9th and 10th grade students will take the second of three Progress Monitoring tests known as the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking, or FAST.  The third test in the series will be given in May. 

Students are not expected to know all the content on the tests as they have only been exposed to half of the year's content, so please make sure your student understands this concept so to not get discouraged during testing.  Similarly, parents should expect their students scores to be lower in the beginning of the year and show progress at mid-year,  with the goal being to achieve a passing score by the END of the school year.

The school schedule for Monday, December 5th and Tuesday, December 6th must be adjusted to accommodate this testing.  See the Class Schedule to the right of this text box.
