Spring Session of Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing in May

  • April 12, 2022

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Ahfachkee School will complete the spring session of Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing in May.  Your child’s teacher will be in touch with you about the details and procedures for your child’s test.  Below is some helpful information:


    Your student has been provided an opportunity to participate in a practice session to become familiar with the secure testing browser (if applicable), the item types, and the response formats they will see on the FSA assessments. If you or your student would like to review the materials, both computer and paper-based practice tests and answer keys are available at https://fsassessments.org/families.html.

    Please review the following Florida Assessment policies with your student before testing:

    • Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices. If your student is found with an electronic device, the test will be invalidated.
    • Testing Rules Acknowledgment—All FSA tests include a Testing Rules Acknowledgment printed in the student’s test and answer book 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.”
    • 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”. 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.
    • Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (e.g., for lunch, an appointment, illness), they 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 them to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.
    • Working Independently —Students are responsible for doing their work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. Any student who is caught cheating during testing will have their tests invalidated.

    If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Valerie Whiteside at (863) 983-6348. For more information about the FSA program, please visit the FSA Portal at www.FSAssessments.org

    Thank you for supporting your child and encouraging them to do their best during this test administration.
