2004 Florida Statutes

Section 1008.301, Florida Statutes 2004

1008.301  FCAT equivalency; concordance study.--The State Board of Education shall conduct a concordance study to determine if crosswalk scores can be determined to be equivalent to those required on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) for high school graduation. At a minimum, the state board shall analyze the PSAT, PLAN, SAT, ACT, and the College Placement Test to determine if equivalent scores can be determined. In cases where such equivalencies can be determined, the state board is authorized to adopt those scores as meeting the graduation requirement in lieu of the FCAT passing score. Each time the score is changed, new equivalencies must be determined. This provision shall take effect for students who are eligible to graduate in the 2003-2004 academic year and thereafter.
