SLOs are subject-specific learning objectives that provide growth measures for student learning. Teams of Cobb County teachers throughout the district developed the SLO assessments that we will administer this year. Students will take the SLO assessments for Physical Education, Art, and Music. In addition, if your student receives gifted services in grades 3rd or 4th they will take the SLO Advanced Learning Program assessment.
For the 2016 - 2017 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.
