  7. 7. What’s New for the 2009 FCAT (continued) <ul><li>NO NRT Administration </li></ul><ul><li>NO Computer-based Reading and Mathematics RETAKE </li></ul><ul><li>Writing (Grades 4, 8, and 10) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Test group codes will not be used for this FCAT Writing administration. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No multiple-choice items for any grade level. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All grade levels will use an unsealed four-page writing folder that contains a writing prompt and 2 lined pages for students to record their responses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Planning sheets are separate handouts from the writing folders (no longer perforated pages inside the test document). Planning sheets are considered secure materials and should be collected after testing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Due to legislative changes, earning a passing score on the Grade 10 FCAT Writing will not be required for graduation with a standard high school diploma. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. What’s New for the 2009 FCAT (continued) <ul><li>Reading, Mathematics, and Science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Test group codes will now be used for ALL grades, including Grades 3 and 4. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Grades 4, 8, and 10 Reading tests contain items that have no test questions and instruct students to leave the answer boxes for those items blank. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scripts for these tests include updated language to help students anticipate and understand these items. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PreID Labels for Reading and Mathematics RETAKE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>One set for Reading Retake and another set for Mathematics Retake </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No subject designation on the labels </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be sure to affix the label to the subject test that the student is scheduled to take. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If a label is affixed to a subject test that a student is not scheduled to take, the book cannot be used and must be returned with all other NOT TO BE SCORED materials.
