Broward Assessment of Florida Standards

BAFS testing will take place at Parkway and across the District beginning Monday, October 27th.

Testing this year is different in that the assessments are taking place during your student’s classroom period. The tests are multiple choice, and will be given in all Language Arts classes, all Math classes, Civics grade 7 classes, and Science grades 5/8 only.

It is very important that your child is in attendance each day that week and they are here at school no later than 8:00am. Please speak with your child and make sure that you emphasize the importance of being to each of their classes on time- early is even better! We are asking that you limit sign outs and doctor appts. that week, as students need to be present to test and receive a score. If a test has two sessions over two days, they must take BOTH sessions.

Scores are available on Virtual Counselor
