Reading and Writing passing rate nearly 93 percent for Class of 2014

Friday, June 27, 2014

According to preliminary state-level data released this week by State Superintendent Randy Dorn, nearly 93 percent of Washington’s 12th-grade students in the Class of 2014 passed both the state reading and writing high school proficiency exams (HSPE), or state-approved alternatives, prior to reaching their respective graduation ceremonies.

In addition to the HSPE, students must also pass a math end-of-course (EOC) exam in algebra I or geometry. EOCs are administered during the last three weeks of school. Preliminary results will be returned in late August, along with preliminary results from the Measurements of Student Progress for grades 3 through 8 and district- and school-level numbers for the HSPE.

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

“The HSPE passage rates are high,” Dorn said. “Congratulations to the teachers, students and families who have been working hard to achieve these results.”
