Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) is the assessment system developed by the Wyoming Department of Education in cooperation with NCS Pearson. The instructionally supportive design of PAWS presents a palette of information focusing on individual student growth and performance. Assessments in PAWS include reading, writing, math and science.

Standards specify what students must master. They are not instructional curricula or technical documents used by teachers to guide day-to-day instruction. Teachers ensure that students achieve standards by using a range of instructional strategies that they select based on their students' needs.
