|Washington Assessment of Student Learning: "Beating the Odds" on the WASL, Revisited: Identifying Consistently Successful—and Struggling—Schools|
|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 updates our effort to identify schools whose students performed above or below expectations on the WASL. To the spring 2006 WASL results we add another set of results, from spring 2007, to determine whether any schools beat the odds for two consecutive years. We also include 4th- and 7th-grade results to identify elementary and middle schools that beat the odds.
