WDE is pleased to offer a new online reporting system for PAWS results. While this reporting system does not provide official results for accountability, it will give schools a preliminary look at their performance along with detailed information to support school improvement. Building Coordinators and District Coordinators may access this new system through the Test Operations Management System, TOMS. Here are the instructions for finding these reports:

  1. Log into TOMS:
  2. On the left side of the screen, find and click on Reports
  3. On the left side of the screen, find Reporting Suite and click there
  4. Click on the blue View Reporting Suite button
  5. Select the grade and subject you would like to review

For further information about these reports, the following link will take you to the archived training video for the ORS:

Please remember that these are initial results and, as such, may not exactly match the results WDE will post to Fusion in the third week of June.
