Which Student Populations Were Tested?

In 1995, the FLORIDA WRITES! was administered to fourth, eighth, and tenth grade students enrolled in Florida's 67 counties and four laboratory schools. The report in the FLORIDA WRITES! Report Web page includes the test results for the 144,502 fourth graders, the 125,454 eighth graders, and the 105,704 tenth graders who participated in the assessment.

The results for certain exceptional education students are excluded from the statistics presented in the report. In the FLORIDA WRITES! and other state-administered tests, the scores for deaf, hard of hearing, specific learning disabled, orthopedically impaired, emotionally handicapped, educable mentally handicapped, and other health impaired students are not included in any classroom, school, district, and state results.
