Am I effectively preparing my students for SOL? This is only a start to my checklist.

  1. When preparing my lessons plans, I review rpstech.org
  2. I use the blueprint, performance level descriptors and framework when planning lessons. http://www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/scoring/performance_level_descriptors/
  3. All my students have completed, at least one, ARDT strand test in number and number sense AND conferenced with me or tutor about results.
  4. My students receive remediation based on MAP, ARDT, benchmark, or/and teacher created assessment data and other individual weaknesses.
  5. FOR 6th Grade Teachers- I have implemented alternate ways to assess that helps my students prepare for the new SOL CAT-6 assessment.
  6. I keep the parents/guardians updated on student academic progress.
