Training Resources for Florida Educators

All Florida students participate in the state’s assessment and accountability system. The Florida Standards Alternate Assessment (FSAA) is designed for students whose participation in the general statewide assessment is not appropriate, even with accommodations, and it implements the requirements of Section 1008.22, Florida Statutes, requiring assessments that accurately measure the core curricular content for students with significant cognitive disabilities.

The FSAA is based on the Florida Standards Access Points (FS-AP) for English Language Arts and Mathematics and Next Generation Sunshine State Standards Access Points (NGSSS-AP) in Science and Social Studies. Access Points are academic expectations written specifically for students with significant cognitive disabilities.

An interpretive guide related to student and school reports, Understanding the Florida Standards Alternate Assessments Reports, is available for parents and teachers. Additional information regarding the FSAA is available on the Florida Department of Education website.
