Item Analysis for Released Item Information
 
 
  The Washington State Item Analysis Program has been collecting released WASL item information from 2001 through 2009. This information summarizes student test scores for each released item in listening, mathematics, reading, science and writing. The test scores are viewable at the school, district or state level.
 
  The Item Analysis Program began collecting MSP/HSPE item information in Spring 2010. This information summarizes student test scores for writing. The MSP/HSPE writing test scores are also viewable at the school, district or state level.
 
  On the Item Analysis report, the released items are organized based on the year they appeared on the assessment and then by the subject and grade level they were for. Not all subject areas were covered each year and not all grade levels were tested on the covered subject areas. For example Listening was not part of the 2001 testing series.
 
  To view the Item Analysis report select a year and subject from the drop-down lists in the navigation bar on the left. This will cause the grade level drop-down list to display. Next select a grade level to display the district and school drop-down lists along with the "Get List" button. To view the report at the state level leave the selected district and school on STATE-WIDE and click the "Get List" button. Change the selected district and/or school to get more detailed information.
