Testing Information: Spring 2023
The Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) is a progress monitoring system that is administered three times per year to track your student’s progress in learning the Benchmarks of Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) standards throughout the school year.
BTES students will participate in the third administration (PM3) of FAST, as well as State Science assessments, in May 2023. Please review the full testing schedule provided below.
The results from PM3 will show how well your student has mastered the grade-level content standards, and you will be provided with information about how to access the results after testing is completed.
Please review the district's Testing Policies with your student prior to testing. For more information about the statewide assessment program, and resources for students and parents, please visit the Assessments page.
Thank you for supporting your student and encouraging them to do their best during this test administration. If you have any questions related to this test administration, please contact Vickie Kandour at email@example.com.
