What is the FAST?
Beginning with the 2022–23 school year, Florida’s statewide, standardized assessments in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics are aligned with the Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.).
Test-prep isn’t an event, it’s a process! With ReadTheory you can confidently prepare students for the reading portions of The Florida Assessment of Student Thinking.
Yes! Getting started is easy. Deploy the pre-test to your students, identify critical reading proficiency gaps, and get comprehensive feedback in real-time.

I use Read Theory as a way for students to practice their reading skills and strategies at home or when they finish early. It’s an amazing resource that is endless. Students will always have something to practice without printing anything!
Curriculum assessment scores start to increase by the end of Quarter 1 with consistent usage. Students begin to feel more confident and their stamina increases gradually throughout the year.
It has motivated my students immensely, it’s the first activity both my classes do every day. They have come to love Read Theory and look forward to it!
