  • WEST-B
    • The WEST-B is criterion referenced and objective based. A criterion-referenced test is designed to measure a candidate's knowledge and skills in relation to an established standard, rather than in relation to the performance of other candidates. The explicit purpose of the WEST-B is to help identify those candidates with the required level of basic skills to perform successfully in an educator preparation program or as a teacher in a public school classroom.

      Committees of Washington State educators reviewed all test objectives for the WEST-B. Objectives are broad, meaningful statements of the basic skills required for entry into educator preparation programs and for entry-level practice in Washington State. The objectives, as a whole, define the content of the test. A content validation survey was then conducted using randomly sampled teachers and principals from Washington State public schools and educator preparation program faculty from public and private institutions in Washington State. Each survey participant reviewed the test objectives to rate their importance. Test questions were developed to match each objective. Test questions reflect knowledge and skills described in textbooks, the Washington Essential Academic Learning Requirements, curriculum guides, and certification standards. Washington State educators and content specialists reviewed the test questions. Test questions are continually reviewed to ensure that content is current and accurate. Copies of the test objectives are available at the WEST-B Web site, www.west.nesinc.com, by selecting "Test Objectives."

      The WEST-B contains three separate subtests: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. The Reading and Mathematics subtests each consist of approximately 60 multiple-choice questions. The Writing subtest consists of approximately 50 multiple-choice questions and two writing prompts.

      The test may include questions that will not count toward an examinee's score. These questions are placed on the test in order to collect information about how they will perform under actual testing conditions.
