FCAT Achiever! from Brainchild (www.Brainchild.com) -- an online assessment and instruction program -- is newly updated to meet the revised Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in mathematics. The revision includes assessments and tutorials for the Big Ideas and Supporting Ideas for grades K-8.
FCAT Achiever! assesses standards-based performance and then delivers tutorials and retests students to determine progress on state standards in mathematics, language arts and science.
The new Florida math standards differ from previous editions in many ways but the most significant change is in the depth of subject matter. Rather than cover dozens of math concepts lightly, the new standards cover fewer per grade level but in significantly greater detail.
