Schools in Door and Kewaunee Counties are preparing to review their WKCE results. All Wisconsin students in grades 3-8 and 10 take the standardized test during the fall of each school year. However, Sturgeon Bay Superintendent Joe Stutting says the exam is pretty much obsolete.
Those new standards are the Common Core State Standards. Wisconsin is one of the 45 states that have adopted the new standards and Stutting says at this point the mathematics and English/language arts standards have been released. The science standards will be coming out soon.
School districts use examinations like the WKCE to better prepare students for their future endeavors.
