Not only will you find the 10 Reading, 10 Writing, and Speaking/Listening standards, but you will have access to the Marzano Scales that will allow you to self-assess your progress with each standard.

Each standard has a scale that breaks down what the learner must be able to do in order to achieve proficiency per standard. Understanding the language of the scales is imperative to be able to self-monitor your progress through this course. Here is a simple breakdown of each section of a scale.

Level 4 = Above and Beyond

Students can create their own scale using state standards.

Level 3 = Target Level

Level 2 = Breakdown to achieve target level

Using the scales and standards as a learning tool.

Each standard has a scale, each scale has learning objectives, each learning objective will have assignments attached that will resemble Level's 1, 2, 3, 4.

►Level 1 is the easiest of the tasks and Level 4 is the most difficult.

With that being said, Level 3 is the target level. If you can achieve Level 3 assignments, then you should perform well on your Florida Standard Reading and Writing Assessment.
