Here's something we bet you didn't know about the WASL

Posted at KOMO-TV - Seattle, Washington

SEATTLE (AP) - Have you ever wished you could look at your child's test booklets for the Washington Assessment of Student Learning to find out why he or she flunked the reading, writing or math test?

Actually, your wish came true about 2 years ago, but parental access to WASL test booklets has remained one of the state's best-kept secrets.

The process is relatively simple. You go online (or make a phone call), print out a form, fill it out and mail it to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Federal law gives the state 45 days to pull your child's test booklets and arrange to show them to you at your school district office.

Well, I don't see why not... Do you mean to tell me that parents didn't always have access to their child's WASL scores? Why not?
