“Students who score in Level 5 demonstrate mastery of the Florida Standards for their grade. They are likely to excel in the next grade.”
While Kaitlyn was up in Iowa, her Florida Standards Assessment scores came in the mail. Amber and I are not 100% sold that standardized tests such as these are necessarily the best gauge of where students stand, they are here and Kaitlyn has to take them, so we figure we may as well accept it.
As she did last year, Kaitlyn did spectacular on the tests! She was a Level 5 (out of 5) in both the Math and English/Language Arts tests.
In Math, Kaitlyn was in the top 25% of the school, top 17% of the district, and top 12% of the state. In the English/Language Arts tests, she was in the top 23% of the school, top 11% of the district, and top 7% of the state.
Each year, Kaitlyn puts a lot of pressure on herself when it comes to taking these tests. She wants to do her absolute best, and she has done a great job so far. While Amber and I focus more on her effort and results on a daily basis and for each grading period, it is difficult not to be proud of her when we get results like these.
