Here's the OSPI site with the breakdown of the stats for the districts in the state.

Use the dropdown menu on the top left to select your district and click Go. It will show WASL breakdowns, student demographics, how the district money is spent etc. There are other features there to if you spend some time clicking around.

Thanks for posting the site. Looking at the results makes me wonder what's going on with math instruction.

This is a great site. When our daughter was in school, the administrators blew off all the tests but the WASL.

True interview with a middle school principal.

Our daughter is smart, straight A student. Answer: Lots of kids have straight A's.

Here are her IOWA test scores she is two grades ahead. Answer: Hm, interesting.

Here are her WASL scores (She passed all tests, but not exceptional) Answer: Wow, she is really smart.

Watch the minority enrollment in eastern Washington. Education is not a priority for Mexican families and it shows. It would be helpful if the scores would be seperated by ethnic group.

The science scores are what threw me. I can't believe less than half the tenth graders passed the science portion. No wonder it isn't a requirement for graduation anymore.

To be perfectly honest, they should get rid of the WASL. It's a pointless test and is actually hindering kids education.
