TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Third graders statewide slightly
increased their reading performance while their average math scores
remained the same as last year on the Florida Comprehensive
The FCAT results released Thursday by the Florida Department of
Education show 72 percent of third graders are reading at or above
grade level. That's up one percentage point from 71 percent last
year but the same as two years ago.
For math it was 78 percent - unchanged from 2009.
The reading scores help determine if students advance to fourth
grade, but they are not the only factor.
FCAT results for other grade levels have not yet been released.
