What is a Student Learning Objective (SLO)?

Dear Parent/Guardian,

It is time for your student to take the online SLO post-test! You may recall learning about the online SLO assessment in August/September 2015 when your child took the pre-test assessment.

What is a Student Learning Objective (SLO)?

SLOs are subject-specific learning objectives that provide growth measures for student learning. Teams of Cobb County teachers from across the district developed the SLO assessments. The SLO implementation requires teachers to use online assessments to determine student growth over the course of the year. The results of these assessments ensure that students, teachers, and Eastvalley Elementary are moving toward a common vision of exemplary instruction and high levels of student academic growth.

Your child will take the online SLO post-test with his/her teacher sometime between Monday, May 2nd and Friday, May 13th. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
