Washington Alternate Assessment System (WAAS)



The WAAS-Portfolio is designed for a small percentage of the total school population for whom traditional assessments, even with accommodations, are not an appropriate measure of progress.

*The Fall 2014 Retake Administration of the WAAS-Portfolio will be the last opportunity to meet standard using this assessment method. Retakes are only available for High School students who submitted, but did not meet, standard in one or more content areas during the 2013-2014 Spring Administration of the WAAS-Portfolio.
