The Wapato School District administers a variety of assessments to our students throughout the school year. The results of each provide important data that shapes various educational decisions and strategies. For students in grades 10-12, these assessments play a pivotal role in fulfilling graduation requirements. For students in grades K-12, our annual benchmark tests gather data on our school programs, ensuring that the district is using our resources wisely and making sure that all students get the supports they need to succeed. Multilingual students from K-12 undergo annual screening and progress monitoring testing for bilingual program placements, ensuring they receive the language development support they need.   Below are a list of assessments administered to Wapato School District students through out the school year
