The Florida Department of Education offers students in Florida’s public school system access to an educational Web site called the FCAT Explorer. This free resource is designed to help your child practice reading and math skills outlined in the Sunshine State Standards.

The FCAT Explorer practice programs provide your child with practice questions and other educational materials that correspond to the skills measured by the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) for reading and math.
