For the 2022–2023 school year, all Florida schools will transition to the Florida Benchmark for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) content standards and to the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) for Grades 3–10 ELA Reading and Grades 3–8 Mathematics.
There will be three progress monitoring (PM) windows for FAST:
PM1 – because this administration occurs at the very beginning of the school year, it is designed to provide a baseline score so teachers can track student progress in learning the B.E.S.T. Standards from PM1 to PM2.
PM2 – this administration will provide a mid-year score to compare to the baseline score from PM1.
PM3 – this last administration will provide a summative score that will accurately measure student mastery of the B.E.S.T. Standards at the end of the school year.
