EWC Students Score above National Average in Tests
July 9, 2003
(Torrington, WY) Eastern Wyoming College announced that fifty-five (55) Associate of Arts and Associates of Science Spring 2003 graduates exceeded national norms on the Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP) in writing skills, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. Individually, fifty (50) of the graduates attained an achievement level at or above the national average in at least one of these subject areas. Also, on a comparison between pre-testing and post-testing, 36-41% of EWCs graduates demonstrated greater than expected progress on the CAAP tests.
The test results coincide with data from the University of Wyoming demonstrating that students transferring from EWC succeed, overall, at a higher rate in their junior and senior years than students who start as freshmen at the University.
"Eastern Wyoming College is able to compete on a national and state level with other institutions of higher learning as indicated by nationally normed testing," said Marilyn J. Cotant, Assistant Dean of Students.
