Up to 53 percent of Washington juniors skipped Smarter Balanced exams this year, according to preliminary figures released Thursday.

Overall, schools had 95 percent testing participation for grades three to eight but rates were significantly lower for high school students, according to the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

As for test results, both Washington and Oregon students out performed projections based on initial numbers released June 2.

Schools across the country tested students using new, rigorous Common Core aligned –assessments for the first time this year. Like Oregon, Washington administered Smarter Balanced exams in English language arts and math to students in grades three to eight and 11, although Washington 10th-grade students also took the language arts tests.
