Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Another week, another round of results

Fcat All you school accountability junkies - and you know who you are - rejoice. The Florida Department of Education plans to release yet another set of FCAT results for you (and us) to pore over on Tuesday.

To recap, we've already seen writing scores, 12th-grade retakes and third-grade reading and math. Next up is the norm-referenced test results for fourth- through 10th-graders, so we can see how kids compare to their peers in other states (as far as NRT's go).

Still in the offing are what we refer to as the "data dump" of fourth- through 10th-grade FCAT Sunshine State Standards test scores, and then the big prize, school grades and adequate yearly progress results. Don't hold your breath for the grades and AYP rankings, though. They're not due until mid-July, as the FCAT truly is becoming the test that keeps on giving all summer long.
