Please check back for updated information on District Finals which will be scheduled between 5/9 and 5/25.  Students will be taking a District Final in courses that are not assessed by the below state tests.  


Students will be taking the statewide assessments in April and May.  These assessments measure a student’s achievement of the state standards in each content area.

Please review the following policies with your student before testing:

  • Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, smartwatches, and Bluetooth/wireless headphones/earbuds at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if the devices are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated.
  • Calculators—If a calculator is allowable for an assessment, it will be provided within the testing platform or by the teacher.  Personal calculators cannot be used for statewide testing.
  • Testing Rules Acknowledgment—All Statewide Science Assessments include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment that reads: “I understand the testing rules that were just read to me. If I do not follow these rules, my test score may be invalidated.” Prior to testing, test administrators read the rules to students, and students acknowledge that they understand the testing rules by signing below the statement in their test books.
  • Discussing Test Content after Testing—The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they sign below the Testing Rules Acknowledgment states: “Because the content in all statewide assessments is secure, you may not discuss or reveal details about the test content (including test items and passages) after the test. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting on social media.” Please make sure your student understands this policy prior to testing and remind them that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, posting to social media, or sharing online. While students may not share information about secure test content after testing, this policy is not intended to prevent students from discussing their testing experiences with their parents/families.
  • Working Independently—Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. In addition, FDOE employs Caveon Test Security to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student tests within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.
  • Leaving Campus—If your student begins a test session and leaves campus before completing it (e.g., for lunch, an appointment), he or she will not be allowed to return to that test session. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.


Statewide Testing Schedule (May Schedule UPDATED)

Please note that students who are enrolled in above grade-level courses or have an IEP or 504 with testing accommodations may be testing on alternate days.  Students will receive a Testing Pass the week prior to testing that will show their individual testing date, time, teacher, and location.
