The State Department of Education" is now defending standardized testing after months of complaints from superintendents and parents.
Superintendents in Florida met Wednesday in Orlando to discuss the Florida Standards Assessments exam.
Superintendents are demanding state officials release more details about "cut scores” which is the scoring range that Education Commissioner Pam Stewart proposed.
It would rate student's performance on the FSA on a scale from "1 to 5."
Officials say a "3" would be considered passing.
Parents are also lashing out saying the test is too data driven and does not reflect how the students are really doing in school.
The Board of Education says it won't set cut scores until its January meeting.
