TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A little over half of third-grade students scored at passing levels on Florida's standardized exam in math and reading.
The Florida Department of Education announced the results Friday.
Florida students must score a level 2 or higher in reading on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in order to advance to the next grade. Nineteen percent scored a level 1 in 2014, though it was still unknown exactly how many of those students would be retained.
This year marks the last administration of the FCAT. Students will take a new exam aligned with the Common Core standards next year.
