SWEETWATER COUNTY — The results for the fourth administration of the Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress (WY-TOPP) have been released by the Wyoming Department of Education, and are now available online.
For the WY-TOPP, results indicate areas of growth in proficiency rates at individual grade levels within each content area. The WY-TOPP tests overall student proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math in grades 3-10, and grades 4, 8, and 10 are also tested in Science.
The WDE reports that overall student proficiency rates statewide decreased in ELA by 0.80 percent, increased in Math by 0.30 percent, and decreased in Science by 0.10 percent compared to the results for 2021.
“Wyoming educators have done a tremendous job ensuring student learning continued through the pandemic,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Brian Schroeder said. “Although there are areas where results decreased slightly for a second year, overall they were less than three percent compared to the state results prior to the pandemic. Wyoming’s commitment to keeping students in the classroom continues to be reflected in these assessments results.”
