This Research Brief presents a method for predicting 10th grade Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) success from 6th grade FCAT performance. A simple equation provides the most probable single score prediction, and give-or-take error margins define high and low probability zones for expected 10th grade scores. In addition, a double-entry table provides estimates of the probability of success on both the Reading and Mathematics tests in 10th grade. The procedures are presented in an extended analogy to weather predictions.
