Skip to comments.Take a sample Florida Standards Test! (Common Core)
Posted on 07/02/2014 7:23:48 PM PDT by dontreadthis
The Florida Department of Education on Monday released more information about the state's new series of standardized tests that will replace most of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test next spring. The information, including sample questions, can be viewed at http://www.fsassessments.org
The Education Department wants to hear what the public, particularly teachers, thinks about the sample questions, so there is a comment form on the website, too. The state will take comment through Sept. 5.
The FSA will rely less on multiple-choice questions and more on items that require students to show their work or how they arrived at an answer. The sample questions show that:
Third-graders might have to write a sentence explaining the main idea of a paragraph.
Seventh-graders might have to pull information from both a passage of text and a map to answer a reading-test question
High-school students might be shown grammar and spelling errors in a passage and then have to make corrections.
Fifth-graders, given a worked-out math problem, might have to pinpoint where a mistake was made.
Well if they could just text it .....
The website requires an ID
If you have a bucket with 5 rocks, and another bucket with 7 rocks, how many buckets do you have?
just sign in as a guest and pick a grade level
Shoot that is too hard for most.
More like, "How's do the buckets make you feel?" Or what color would the buckets be?
That would be 57.
If it takes a chicken and a half a day and a half to lay an egg and a half, how . . .. .
correct, there’s no wrong answer
I think I scored 487 on the 1965 Florida Senior Placement test. I got 99th percentile on four of the five sections but verbal or grammar or whatever it was called caught me.
If that’s your answer then that is a good answer. Good job Scrambler!
Da goberment tells us that there are 11 million illegals in this contry. 11 million are in Calyfornia alone. How many would be in a country with 57 stats?
And what are their names?
bump for later
Is the test administered via computer or on paper?
I would bet on computer
Archie Bunker was helping his niece do her homework and there was one of those questions “If train “A” leaves the station at six o’clock traveling 50 miles per hour and train “B” leaves.....” Archie said “Train ‘A’ ain’t never gonna’ catch train ‘B’. Train ‘A” was tryin’ to catch train ‘B’ when I was a kid.”
One racist Cracker Gal roostin on a park bench. 20 righteous Homies jiven on sidewalk.
How long before Cracker be bleedin on ground?
social justice for math dummies
“If you have a bucket with 5 rocks, and another bucket with 7 rocks, how many buckets do you have?”
I wanna throw those rocks at libtards.
Just don’t chew your Pop Tart into the shape of a gun...;’)
Three. Because two buckets have more than their fair share?
The goal is to make every kid dumb as a bucket of rocks.
The only reason this thing doesn’t die on the vine is that lots and lots of influential Republicans are backing it.
Maybe not publicly, but behind the scenes they are keeping it alive.
I know about some people who will get angry for the Repubs for $15.
I know some people who think the GOPe is on their side.
Probably “Do you agree the buckets are a Trigger that reminds you of slaves carrying water from the well the Massa’s house? If yes, please file a grievance with the school principal.”
“If you have a bucket with 5 rocks, and another bucket with 7 rocks, how many buckets do you have?
Three. Because two buckets have more than their fair share?
No, you pass a law such that each bucket must have equal numbers of rocks, so, four rocks and four rocks*.
* The remaining rocks are consumed by overhead administrative costs.
LMAO!! You truly are mad! :-)
You have 12 rocks, so subtract 1 from that and you get 2, subtract zero from two and still have a 2 left, so there are 2 buckets.
You are the smartest man in the United States.
That’s a real question? Idiotic.
I was just watching Jimmy Kimmel. He did a quiz with two English people on the street.
One of the questions was “What is the name of the stadium where the LA. Dodgers play?”
Rick Scott is toast. He pushed this new Commie Core test, while claiming to be against Commie Core. He keeps handing the Governors mansion back to Crist
I took it right off the test site.
That’s amazing! In other words, “Make up data to fit the scientist’s claim!”
No. I am a hard science academic and the question is to determine if the student can recognize a downward trending scatter plot. It is a completely legitimate question. I just went through and took a look at about half the 12 grade math test and saw nothing unusual. I actually started taking it but the formatting for equations was kind of awkward and I didn’t want to dink around.
You can go on it as a guest. I looked at the 6th grade writing test.
The answer is always “global warming”.
I know folks with kids who are at their wits’ end trying to learn elementary level arithmetic via common core curricula. Parents have no idea how common core works and teachers actively discourage them from trying to help their kids learn math using the old, tried-and-true ways.
If parents can’t look at a problem and show their kids how to solve itespecially if teachers discourage assistancethen then you have the ingredients for a education disaster in the making.
I wonder how many illegals learned common core before breaking the laws to enter the country. I’ll bet their employers don’t care.
Absolutely! And speaking of all the illegal alien children in our schools, if the native born children are having problems with the cc curriculum, we can expect the outcomes for these children to be even worse.
Frankly, I expect that teachers themselves will be increasingly on the forefront of the opposition to common core because they will be held accountable for the negative testing scores, not the educational bureaucrats and politicians who foisted the curriculum on the country.
Metmom holds both the Homeschool and the Another Reason to Homeschool ping lists. I'm merely filling in temporarily.
They took these questions straight from the Florida State University Entrance Exam.
In my neck of the woods, the left has changed their mantra to “climate change”. Their propaganda catch phrase was beaten like a rented mule with the record setting harsh winter we experienced in 2013/2014.
I prefer the realistic/conservative explanation.........”weather”.
