Statewide Assessment

Wyoming’s assessment system measures students’ progress toward the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards (WYCPS) or the Wyoming Content and Performance Extended Standards (WYCPES). It is used to enhance teaching and learning, support school improvement, and provide data for accountability ensuring the effectiveness of schools, programs, and staff. When used in conjunction with a school district’s annual assessment program, statewide assessments provide the information needed to develop and implement strategies for improvement of student performance.
