State Superintendent to Release MSP, HSPE and AYP Results
OLYMPIA — August 11, 2010 — State Superintendent Randy Dorn will release spring 2010 state testing results at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 31, at the John A. Cherberg Senate Office Building in Olympia.
The release will consist of three items:
- Results from the spring administration of the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP), taken by students in grades 3-8;
- Results from the spring administration of the science High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE); and
- Annual Adequate Yearly Progress “improvement” lists for schools and districts, as required by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
The date of the release this year was delayed so that the State Board of Education could establish passing scores (known as “cut scores”) for the math MSP, which was given for the first time this spring. The delay also means that the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction will not be able to release any data early.
School districts will mail MSP and HSPE student score reports to families by mid September.
TVW, Washington’s statewide public affairs television station, will broadcast and Webcast the news conference live. See www.tvw.org for Webcast details.
Reporters unable to attend can speak by phone with Superintendent Dorn by appointment only. To schedule a call, contact Nathan Olson at (360) 725-6015, (360) 584-8967 or Nathan.Olson@k12.wa.us.
