|Washington Assessment of Student Learning: Promoting Academic Success: Influence on WASL Retake Scores Through Summer 2007|
|To “increase understanding of the students who did not meet the standard in one or more areas of assessment,” the 2006 Washington State Legislature directed the Institute to conduct a “review and statistical analysis of Washington assessment of student learning data.” The study direction also calls for a review of "options to augment the current system of assessments to provide additional opportunities for students to demonstrate that they have met the state learning standards." (SSB 6618)|
This report examines the effectiveness of Promoting Academic Success (PAS) for students in the class of 2008, where effectiveness is defined as the difference in performance on WASL retakes for students who did and did not participate in PAS. We conducted statistical analyses to evaluate effectiveness by subgroup, by PAS session, and overall effectiveness.
