Cheyenne, WY (AP) - Wyoming students are starting to take the annual statewide assessment to measure their academic progress.

The testing window for the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students opened this week and ends March 28.

The Wyoming Department of Education says students will see a different version of the test this year.

This year's PAWS is aligned to new English language arts and math standards.

Assessment Director Deb Lindsey says this year's test will represent a new baseline for Wyoming students and is different enough from previous assessments that it cannot be readily compared with previous years' tests.

PAWS is administered in grades 3-8 and is used to measure students' progress toward Wyoming content standards.
