I got the NNAT pack. I like the variety of questions offered in the test pack, as they provided us with an idea as to what will be on the test.

With one week of my son using the OLSAT/NNAT, his scores improved drastically. My son received the training and confidence he needed to succeed and he was accepted onto the program!
Ola
I got the Wonderlic Personality Cognitive prep and it was money well spent!
Maknev
I am really happy with my MAP preparation purchase. My boys scored in the 99 percentile for 2nd and 5th grade!
Rebecca
We used the NNAT practice packs. Very helpful! Highly recommended.
Sherry
We used the CogAT practice pack. The questions in this study pack were very similar in style to what appeared on the actual test. I would definitely recommend this product to other parents.
Ryan
My 3rd grade daughter was recommended to take the CogAT. We loved the explanations as they helped her to understand the material. The packs are a helpful tool and less expensive than a private tutor.

What Are Florida’s National and International Assessments?

Aside from the FSA and NGSSS assessments, Florida also offers a range of national and international assessments:

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Students must take this nationwide achievement and progress measurement test. State participation is mandatory, and each school arranges tests as per the federal requirement. Students in 4th, 8th and 12th grade should expect tests across a variety of subjects. Speak to your child’s school for more information. Tests will next be administered between January 30 and March 10, 2017.

Program for International Student Assessment (PISA)

Students must take this test which is administered every three years. Results from 60 countries are compared to identify knowledge and skill trends. Tests focus on different subjects each year, with Science being the focus in 2015 and Reading to be the focus of the 2018 tests. The test is approximately 120 minutes long.

Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS)

Students must take this test which is administered every five years. Results from 55 education systems, including others from the US, are compared to analyze reading literacy standards. PIRLS 2016 was the fourth administration of the test. The next test will be administered in 2021.

Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)

Students in fourth and eighth grade take these assessments, once every four years. The next test is due to be administered in 2019. The results of these tests are compared internationally.

Your child may be expected to participate in one or more of the above tests, on top of his or her FSA and NGSSS assessments. Speak with your child's school to find out more information about each of these tests.
