Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Another round of test results due out next week

When discussing FCAT writing and third grade results a week ago, Florida education commissioner Tony Bennett said all the rest of the FCAT and end-of-course exam outcomes would be released no later than June 8.

The Florida Department of Education announced today that it will meet the deadline.

It scheduled a media call to provide background information on Tuesday. The report is to come at some point afterward. A spokeswoman said the date is not set because the department's number crunchers are still ensuring the validity of the data.

It's the first year the state will have a passing score for geometry and biology end of course exams, and the second for algebra. The U.S. History end of course exam still does not have a cut score.
