FSA Practice

The FSA portal has been officially updated and now has practice assessments for each specific grade level 3-10 as well as specific assessments for Math EOCs.  The types of items in the training tests correlate completely with the item specifications and the number of practice tests also provide more examples of question types and leveled texts. Grade specific assessments can be accessed through FSA Practice Assessments.

 

Please review the following policies students/guardians should follow for testing at Pacetti Bay:

Electronic Devices Policy—If students are found with ANY electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones or smartphones, during testing OR during breaks, their tests will be invalidated. The best practice would be for students to leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.

Leaving Campus—If students leave campus before completing a test session (for lunch, an appointment, illness, etc.), they WILL NOT be allowed to complete the test. Students and parent/guardians should be aware of this policy. If a student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for the student to wait and be tested on a make-up day.

After the test – “After the test, you may not reveal details about the test items or passages to anyone. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on websites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. If you are found sharing information about test items or passages, your test will be invalidated.” Please make sure that students understand this policy prior to testing and remind them that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting to blogs or social media websites, etc.
