FSA Training Tests
FSA (Florida Standards Assessment) is the state’s new assessment tool. Students have access to online practice training tests through the FSA website and are encouraged to take these online tests to become familiar with the system. At school, we will let every student experience this new test system prior to the actual test, but we encourage students to practice at home as much as possible.
Please note: The practice tests ARE NOT meant to teach your student any type of curriculum, only how to navigate and use the tools available to them during testing.
The website to access the practice tests is: www.fsassessments.org
Please make sure to read the Florida Standards Assessments Quick Guide to the Training Tests prior to assessing the website, so you will know how to sign on. The guide is located under the January Paw Prints newsletter on our school’s web page.
EOC and EOY Course Support
See our Academics page for the course support link for End of Course and End of Year testing.
