SLOs are subject-specific learning objectives that provide growth measures for student learning. Teams of Cobb County teachers from throughout the district developed the SLO assessments that we will administer this year. Our class will take the SLO assessments for Physical Education, Art, and Music and 4thgrade ALP students will take the Advanced Learning Program SLO assessment.
For the 2015-2016 school year, the SLO implementation requires teachers to use assessments to determine student growth over the course of the year. The results of these assessments ensure that students, teachers, and schools are moving toward a common vision of exemplary instruction and high levels of student academic growth.
