About the Exam
In Florida, students in grades K-12 take the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) to help administrators, teachers, parents and students measure educational progress and gains. The FSA Grades 9-10 English Language Arts test measures students for writing, language standards, reading comprehension, and speaking and listening standards. The test consists of 60-64 items that take the form of multiple-choice questions, typed or written responses and text-enhanced items (TEIs). Results are measured as T-scores, percentile ranks, content area scores and achievement levels. The test is typically taken on a computer, but is also available on paper. It is administered from late February to early May with retakes available throughout the year.
