I'd have her go on as the problem is math and not reading. Worry about the testing later because things are changing with that.
If you're in Florida, the grade level where the state test must be passed is 3rd grade not 5th. The reading portion must be passed but not the math. (I'm a 3rd grade teacher.) However, the state test of FCAT 2.0 will not be administered any longer. There will be a new test with the new state standards (FL's version of common core) although I can't recall the name of it off the top of my head. It's never been administered before so who knows how students will score? The sample questions were just released earlier this month.
I'd work with her on math concepts at home. See if there are any computer programs the school recommends.
