Fort Lauderdale, FL (CNN) - For a decade now, students in Florida have been required to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, better known as the F-CAT.
It's been credited with raising test scores, especially for minority students in core subjects like math, reading and writing.
But the F-CAT has also attracted many critics, including members of the Broward County School Board.
On Wednesday, the school board unanimously approved a resolution calling for an end to the standardized test. In debate, every board member said the test basically does more harm than good, and not a word was voiced in opposition.
Another board member said while evaluation is critical, so much emphasis on one high-stakes test changes how they teach, and not in a good way.
The resolution urges Governor Rick Scott, the legislature and the state's Department of Education to develop a new system of evaluation that doesn't require extensive standardized testing.
