Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST)

Beginning with the 2022–23 school year, Florida’s statewide, standardized assessments in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics will be aligned with the Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.). The Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST), which includes VPK through grade 10 Reading and VPK through grade 8 Mathematics assessments, will be administered as a progress monitoring assessment, which students will participate in three times per year. B.E.S.T. assessments that are not part of the FAST progress monitoring program include grades 4–10 Writing and end-of-course (EOC) assessments in Algebra 1 and Geometry.

RTI is a whole-school initiative to target students’ areas of need. Each teacher will use assessments to help them plan instruction. The major portion of a student’s instruction takes place at the CORE level of instruction. CORE includes everything that the classroom teacher does to ensure that learning takes place. Teachers present the lesson, direct the work period, hold small group assistance and individual conferences, create learning centers, and assess learning. Students who need more practice and improvement after CORE instruction, may be placed in learning tiers and given additional instructional time for up to six weeks at a time. At the end of each tier, students will be reassessed to show growth.
