Washington State Assessments
Measurements of Student Progress (MSP)
The name of the MSP, given to students in grades 3-8, conveys the goal of the test: to measure student progress.
High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE)
This test measures the proficiency of students in high school and serves as the State's exit for reading and writing.
End-of-Course Exams (EOC)
Students in grades 8-12 began taking end-of-course exams in spring 2011. In spring 2012, students will be offered an end-of-course exam in biology as the State's science exam. Math and science EOC exams will be scheduled during the last three weeks of the school year.
About one percent of students participate in the Washington Alternate Assessment System (WAAS), a challenging program for students in special education.
Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) was given as the state assessment from spring 1997 to summer 2009. It was replaced by the MSP and HSPE.
