JUST IN! Test scores and updated rankings for the 2013-14 school yearwere posted on SchoolDigger this week!
A primary purpose of the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) is to foster program improvement at the school, district, and state levels in support of the teaching and learning that takes place in Wyoming public classrooms and meets all of the attendant requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001(NCLB). In 2005-2006, PAWS became the official statewide assessment used to measure individual student achievement against the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards in reading, writing, and mathematics for grades 3 – 8 and 11. In 2008, a science assessment was implemented for grades 4, 8, and 11. Beginning in 2013, the PAWS will be administered in grades 3-8 in reading, math, and grades 4 and 8 in science. Writing is now assessed through the SAWS.Source: PAWS Website, Wyoming DOE
