Preliminary high school results show a great majority of students meet reading and writing standards
More than 90 percent of Hazen High School 10th-graders this spring passed the writing portion of the Washington Assessment of Student Learning. That’s an increase of nearly 10 percent over last year’s test takers.

More than 80 percent of Hazen’s 10th-graders passed the reading portion, about 4 percent more than last year.

Liberty High School figures were unavailable because the Issaquah School District does not break down data by school, said Sharon Manion, district director of assessment.

To graduate, students must meet standards on both the reading and writing WASL, acquire 22 credits, complete a culminating project, and create a plan for life beyond high school. Students who passed the reading and writing WASL do not have to take the test again, and now can concentrate on other graduation requirements.

The 10th-grade WASL results were recently released to allow high school students who did not meet the standard to be eligible to take the test again in August. More comprehensive results, including for students in grades 3-8, will be available at the end of August.

To sign up

To register for the August WASL, high school students can go to www.k12.wa.us/waslregistration or call 866-400-9275, toll-free, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. Students need their state identification number, on the front of their WASL score report, to register.
