Wyoming students begin PAWS testing

By  | 

Casper, WY -- Wyoming students begin taking the annual statewide assessment this week to measure their academic progress. Testing will continue through March 28.

The Wyoming education department says students will see a different version of the test this year. This year's PAWS is aligned to new English language arts and math standards.

Assessment Director Deb Lindsey says this year's test will represent a new baseline for Wyoming students and is different enough from previous assessments that it cannot be readily compared with previous years' tests.

PAWS is administered in grades 3-8 and is used to measure students' progress toward Wyoming content standards.
