Seeing WASL Results

The Seattle Times recently reported that parents are permitted to see their children's WASL reports. This may be important for children who were surprised by failing scores. In general, it may be helpful seeing why children are having trouble on standardized or regular classroom tests. Sometimes it is because of poor test saavy, including 'careless' mistakes, bad time planning, or the need for accommodations in the setting of disabilities. Don't forget too, that OSPI is releasing a third of WASL items every year - so students can practice on actual items and become more familiar with the format and expectations of the test.
