Preliminary results show reading and writing passing rate surpassing 93 percent for Class of 2013

Thursday, June 20, 2013

According to preliminary state-level data released today by State Superintendent Randy Dorn, more than 93 percent of Washington’s 12th-grade students in the Class of 2013 passed both the state reading and writing high school proficiency exams (HSPE), or state-approved alternatives, prior to reaching their respective graduation ceremonies.

The Class of 2013 faces a new hurdle: They also need to pass a math end-of-course (EOC) exam in algebra I or geometry. EOCs are administered during the last three weeks of school, and preliminary results will be returned in late August, along with preliminary results from the Measurements of Student Progress for grades 3-8 and district- and school-level numbers for the HSPE.

Final results for all exams will be available in the fall.
