    4         to identify concordant and comparative scores on

    9  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   10  
   11         Section 1. Subsections (9) and (10) of section 1008.22,
   12  Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
   13         1008.22 Student assessment program for public schools.—
   14         (9) CONCORDANT SCORES.—The Commissioner of Education must
   15  identify scores on the SAT, and ACT, the Spanish language
   16  College Assessment and Admission Test (PEAU), and the revised
   17  version of the Spanish language University Admission Test (PAA),
   18  that if achieved satisfy the graduation requirement that a
   19  student pass the grade 10 statewide, standardized Reading
   20  assessment or, upon implementation, the grade 10 ELA assessment.
   21  The commissioner may identify concordant scores on assessments
   22  other than the SAT, and ACT, PEAU, and PAA. If the content or
   23  scoring procedures change for the grade 10 Reading assessment
   24  or, upon implementation, the grade 10 ELA assessment, new
   25  concordant scores must be determined. If new concordant scores
   26  are not timely adopted, the last-adopted concordant scores
   27  remain in effect until such time as new scores are adopted. The
   28  state board shall adopt concordant scores in rule.
   29         (10) COMPARATIVE SCORES FOR END-OF-COURSE (EOC)
   30  ASSESSMENT.—
   31         (a) The Commissioner of Education must identify:
   32         1. One or more comparative scores for the Algebra I EOC
   33  assessment. If the content or scoring procedures change for the
   34  EOC assessment, new comparative scores must be determined. If
   35  new comparative scores are not timely adopted, the last-adopted
   36  comparative scores remain in effect until such time as new
   37  scores are adopted; and.
   38         2. Comparative scores on the PEAU and the PAA assessments
   39  for the EOC assessments required under paragraph (3)(b). If the
   40  content or scoring procedures change for an EOC assessment, new
   41  comparative scores must be determined. If new comparative scores
   42  are not timely adopted, the last-adopted comparative scores
   43  remain in effect until such time as new scores are adopted.
   44         (b) The state board shall adopt comparative scores in rule.
   45         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2018.
