Florida's High School Competency Test (HSCT) is a multiple-choice test of the application of basic academic skills to everyday life situations.

This technical report presents background information about the HSCT and statistical data from the October 1993 administration to 11th graders. Information is provided to facilitate an evaluation of the psychometric adequacy of those results. The descriptive statistics and item discrimination indices are reported with a discussion of the validity and reliability of HSCT scores. Scoring and equating scores are discussed. Appendixes contain a summary of the skills within the HSCT and a chart of frequency and percentage distributions for the HSCT scores. (Contains 10 tables, 1 figure, and 10 references.) (SLD)
