Item Specifications

The release of the updated FSA Test Item Specifications is intended to provide greater specificity for item writers in
developing items to be field tested in 2016. The revisions in the specifications will NOT affect the Spring 2015
Florida Standards Assessments. The enhanced explanations, clarifications, and sample items should assist item
writers and other stakeholders in understanding the Florida Standards and the various types of test items that can
be developed to measure student proficiency in the applicable content areas for 2016 and beyond.

Geometry EOC Item Specifications
Florida Standards Assessments

The draft Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) Test Item Specifications
(Specifications) are based upon the Florida Standards and the Florida Course
Descriptions as provided in CPALMs. The Specifications are a resource that defines
the content and format of the test and test items for item writers and reviewers.
Each grade-level and course Specifications document indicates the alignment of
items with the Florida Standards. It also serves to provide all stakeholders with
information about the scope and function of the FSA.
Item Specifications Definitions
Also assesses refers to standard(s) closely related to the primary standard
statement.
Clarification statements explain what students are expected to do when
responding to the question.
Assessment limits define the range of content knowledge and degree of difficulty
that should be assessed in the assessment items for the standard.
Item types describe the characteristics of the question.
Context defines types of stimulus materials that can be used in the assessment
items.

Modeling Cycle
The basic modeling cycle involves (1) identifying variables in the situation and
selecting those that represent essential features, (2) formulating a model by
creating and selecting geometric, graphical, tabular, algebraic, or statistical
representations that describe relationships between the variables, (3) analyzing
and performing operations on these relationships to draw conclusions, (4)
interpreting the results of the mathematics in terms of the original situation, (5)
validating the conclusions by comparing them with the situation, and then either
improving the model or, if it is acceptable, (6) reporting on the conclusions and
the reasoning behind them. Choices, assumptions, and approximations are
present throughout this cycle.
