Florida to implement replacement for FCAT

Florida is picking a new test to replace the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test that's been a mainstay in the state's schools for more than a decade. Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart has announced that the state is approving a six year contract with the not-for-profit "American Institutes For Research" to develop the test. The new test will be administered in the spring of 2015. The test will be based largely on Common Core state standards, although Florida officials tweaked the standards somewhat earlier this year.
