The percentage of Florida third graders passing the state's FCAT math and reading exams did not improve this year -- remaining largely flat for the past three years -- according to initial test results released Friday.

Fifty-seven percent of third graders scored at least a 3, the state's passing score, on the reading test. On the math exam, 58 percent of third graders scored a least a 3.

Writing scores were mixed. A higher percentage of eighth and tenth graders passed the writing exam this year. But fewer fourth graders passed the exam.

The Florida Department of Education is holding a press conference at 11 a.m. Check StateImpact Florida later for updates.
