WASL test results due Friday

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - State schools Superintendent Randy Dorn will release the statewide results for the spring WASL on Friday. The state will also be sharing the list of schools not meeting adequate yearly progress goals, as required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Starting this next school year, Washington schools will be giving a new test to its students in grades three through eight and 10.

School officials say the new tests will take less time, will require shorter answers and in some cases will be taken on a computer. High school students will still be required to pass reading and writing tests to graduate.

Some high school students are taking their very last Washington Assessment of Student Learning exams this week. Their results will be available in the fall.
