The intent of these sample test materials is to orient teachers and students to the types of questions on Florida Statewide Science Assessments. By using these materials, students will become familiar with the types of items and response formats that they will see on the actual test. The sample questions and answers are not intended to demonstrate the length of the actual test, nor should student responses be used as an indicator of student performance on the actual test.
This booklet contains answers to the Florida Statewide Science Assessment sample questions, as well as explanations for the correct answers and rationales for the incorrect answers (distractor rationales). It also gives the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) benchmark assessed by each item.
