SLO Testing
Student Learning Objectives (SLO's) are growth measurements that will be assessed for all classes not subject to annual state assessments. For example, Visual Arts, Band, Choir, Agriculture, P.E., etc. These SLO tests will be given as a pre- and post-test at the beginning and end of each of these classes (either 9 weeks or year-long). Pre-tests will be given on August 19th and August 20th, 2014 during their Connections times.

"The primary purpose of SLOs is to improve student performance at the classroom level. An equally important purpose of SLOs is to provide evidence of each teacher's instructional impact on student learning. The SLO process requires teachers to use assessments to measure student growth using two data points (a pre- to a post-assessment." (From the Georgia Department of Education SLO Operations Manual)
