Standardized Scores Improve Here

Not unlike their peers across the state, Teton County School District #1 students did better on this year’s Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students, or PAWS testing than they did in previous years.  Last week, the Wyoming Department of Education released the results from this year’s testing.  During a Casper news conference last week, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill told reporters that Wyoming students had performed better this year at every grade level.  Reached by telephone yesterday, vacationing Teton County Superintendent Pam Shea said in particular, the areas the district had been focusing on improved. At the same time, Shea says there are specific areas of concern that remain for the district to address. Still, considering the big picture, Shea says the results show an improving trend in students’ achievement and she is happy to see that.  PAWS exams measure the performance of students in grades three through eight and again in their Junior years for math, reading and writing.  Students are measured for their performance in science in fourth, eighth and 11th grades.
