I can't believe how long it has taken me to post this but our FCAT scores came in on Thursday. I am so proud and impressed with how well my students did!!! For those of you not living in Florida "they" increased the difficulty of the test last year and then increased the cut scores (half way through the year) this year. I could go on and on about that but that will dampen my mood so anyway . . . we were all a little anxious (to say the least) to get the scores back. When I saw the list I was
happy delighted overjoyed elated or maybe all four! Eighty percent of my students scored at a level 3, which is proficient, or above in both reading and in math!!! Remember this is a relatively new test, new expectations, my second year teaching 3rd grade reading and my first year teaching 3rd grade math and I am an inclusion teacher this year. I have to give credit where credit is due my students are very hard workers, actually that doesn't even begin to describe them and I am extremely blessed to have been able to be the person that guided them through their learning this year. For those of you still awaiting the results of your students' test scores I hope that the results reflect both you and your students hard work this year!
