Florida College Basic Skills Exit Test (Exit Test)
Through s. 1008.30, F.S.,
the 1997 Legislature made passing an exit test a condition for meeting basic college computation and communication
skills requirements. As a service to the institutions offering college preparatory programs, the Florida Department
of Education developed test forms and related materials to meet the requirements of the legislation. The Florida
College Basic Skills Exit Test comprises subtests in writing, reading, and mathematics. Students who do not achieve
passing scores on the Florida College Entrance-Level Placement
Test (CPT) must pass the appropriate remedial course(s), as well as the Florida College Basic Skills Exit Test.
Institutions are responsible for the administration of the exit test. This includes maintaining test security and
setting test dates, length of administration time, and passing requirements.
