LEE COUNTY, Fla. - WINK News gets to the bottom of some FCAT confusion.
On Friday morning a published report stated local fourth and fifth graders FCAT scores were being tossed out because there concern the results were not accurate.
We did some digging and found out there was mis-communication.
The results are not being thrown out, they are being reviewed.
The results are being reviewed by two independent parties hired by the Florida Department of Education.
They will determine if the scores are valid.
Lee County Superintendent, Dr. James Browder says accuracy on the FCAT scores is important.
"Most of us are judge by those scores so we want to make sure they are accurate," he said.
There's no time frame as to when the reviewed FCAT scores will be released.
