detailed WASL reports for parents: coming soon

Parents face a deluge of digits, thanks to NCLB.
This fall, Washington parents will also get an alphabet soup of test reports, both federally and state mandated, that will help them track whether their children and local schools are meeting benchmarks.

School districts and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction will send home a personalized score report, with their child's results on the Washington Assessment of Student Learning and the aggregate scores of the school, district and state.
Notably, the article has no analysis of what parents are going to do with such data, other than appealing a low score.

Although you can be sure at least a few will use them as a financial incentive. After all, they're just following their government's example.
