Overview of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT)

If you have a child in elementary, middle or high school in Florida, then you need to know about the standardized tests your child will be taking. To comply with the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, Florida administers standardized tests to students beginning in 3rd grade grade through high school.

Time4Learning, an online education service that teaches many of the skills these exams test, offers this page to help you understand Florida’s standardized tests and how you can help your children prepare.

Fore more info on Florida FCAT preparation try the Time4learning site or FCAT Explorer.
