TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Gov. Ron DeSantis said he plans to get rid of the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA), the state’s standardized math and reading tests.
At a press conference Tuesday, the governor said he was crafting legislation that will phase out FSA testing during the 2022-23 school year.
Educators will instead use progress monitoring to evaluate students’ performance.
“We will continue to set high standards but we also have to recognize it is the year 2021 and the FSA is quite frankly outdated,” DeSantis said. “There will be 75% less time for testing which will mean more time for learning.”
