ABSTRACT
The scores needed to pass Washington's standardized tests in 4th and 7th grades will drop this year, and new scores for 10 graders may lie ahead. A committee of more than 180 educators, test experts, business officials, and students suggested the changes in March. They were adopted May 10 by the nine-member Academic Achievement and Accountability Commission. Under the new policy, minimum-proficiency scores will drop in reading and mathematics for 4th and 7th graders who recently took the tests.
