The Student Assessment and Minimum Student Performance Standards Sections of the Florida Department of Education present the results of the April and October 1981 administrations of the State Student Assessment Test, Parts I (basic skills) and II (application of basic skills). Grades 3, 5, 8 and 11 were measured on minimal performance in the basic skills area of reading, writing, and mathematics. Across the tested grades, students did very well on many of the State Student Assessment Test, Part I standards, and performance was adequate on others. Some Mathematics standards were more difficult for all grade levels than were the majority of reading and writing standards. In Communication Skills, only the eleventh-grade writing standard that required students to punctuate correctly, the two eighth-grade reading logical thinking standards, and the fifth grade standard of determining the main idea of a message had mastery rates of below 70 percent. In Mathematics, less than 70 percent mastery rate was achieved by fifth graders in solving the practical problems of whole numbers and money and of interpreting graphs. Eighth graders had difficulties with solving money problems, and adding and subtracting fractions; and eleventh graders, multiplying fractions. (Author/PN)
