TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Department of Education has released a ranking of all Florida public schools based on scores on the state's standardized test.

The data released Monday ranks all 3,078 traditional public and charter schools with groupings by elementary, middle and high schools. It's also broken down by district.

The rankings are based off scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. The department released a similar ranking of school districts last week.

Gov. Rick Scott said the rankings will help measure progress toward the state's goal of ensuring students have access to world-class schools.

The Florida Education Association, the statewide teachers' union, and others have criticized the rankings, saying schools can't be judged solely on test scores and noting factors like students' socio-economic status weren't taken into account.
