FCAT Test Resources for Students
Many students experience anxiety at the thought of taking a standardized test, which can result in lower scores for even the best of students. With FCAT testing fast approaching, check out the following online resources at your Library to help battle testing terrors.
Learning Express Library offers several practice tests to help children prepare for the FCAT. The FCAT 5th Grade Mathematics Test is based on the Florida Sunshine State Standards and offers both multiple choice and open-ended math problems. For fourth graders, reading test practice is also available via the FCAT 4th Grade Reading Test. Tests are available for eighth grade reading and mathematics as well. Users will need to set up a free account with Learning Express Library in order to use the program.
The FCAT Explorer is another resource available at the Library, via the Florida Department of Education. There you’ll find practice resources, the latest news regarding the FCAT, guides to all FCAT tests for parents and students and resources for educators. Students need a username and password to access interactive practice programs; this information can be obtained from a child’s teacher.
Books for practicing the FCAT can also be found through the Library’s catalog.
Good luck to all students taking FCATs this spring!
