W.Va. Schools Emphasize Westest

By  | 

Every state is required to have some type of education evaluation, and in West Virginia it's the Westest.

This week, 3rd through 11th grade students in the Mountain State are testing their knowledge in language arts, math, social studies and science.

Wood County superintendent, Bill Niday says the test is based on the curriculum that's taught all year in the classroom.

He says it's important for students to get the proper amount of sleep this week and have a good breakfast each day.

"It's so important that the state of West Virginia doesn't allow you to have any extracurricular activities going on this week," he said.

Niday says this year's goal is to improve over last year. Test results should be back in August.
