Predicting FCAT Performance. Research Brief. Volume 0408
Froman, Terry; Rubiera, Vilma
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Student scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) tests are increasingly being used for administrative purposes. Promotion and placement decisions are largely governed by FCAT performance. Although efforts are made to make the FCAT scores available as soon as possible, for some purposes they are not on hand when needed. Additionally, as the importance of FCAT scores increases, it becomes more desirable to have some kind of early indication of how students are expected to score at each grade level, even before the tests are administered. In response to these growing needs for anticipation of FCAT scores, this paper presents a method for predicting FCAT scores based on the previous year's performance.
