Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
This document contains sample test items from the Florida College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST), an achievement test that measures communication and computation skills that students should have acquired on completing their sophomore year in college. The sample items in this document test the set of skills that were revised in September 1990 and began to be assessed on the October 1992 CLAST. CLAST skills are measured using four subtests: (1) essay; (2) English language skills; (3) reading; and (4) mathematics. Sample items are given for each area. Appendix A lists skills by broad skill categories within each subtest, and Appendix B contains skill statements and holistic scoring criteria for the essay subtest. Appendix C contains the answer key to the multiple choice items. The actual CLAST directions for the essay are presented here, and directions for the other subtests are abbreviated. (SLD)
