What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of fourth grade students that are proficient or above in mathematics.
The percentage is based on student scores from the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 (FCAT 2.0).
Why this is important: 
Competence in mathematics is essential for functioning in everyday life, as well as for success in our increasingly technological workplace. Students who take higher level mathematics and science courses which require strong fundamental skills in mathematics are more likely to attend and to complete college.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 67 Florida counties.
