TALLAHASSEE - Florida tenth-graders did not fare well on the new version of the state's standardized test.

The Florida Department of Education says half of all tenth-grade students failed the reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test or F-CAT.

A little more than half of ninth-grade students passed the reading exam.

The new version of the F-CAT is part of a plan to challenge students academically.
Officials say the results are part of the transition.
