We begin working on our SLO Science Academy – a series of reviews have been developed to prepare students for the Science SLO.
What is an SLO? SLO stands for Student Learning Objectives. It is a district-developed subject assessment given to students at the beginning and end of a course.
What is the purpose of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)? The primary purpose of SLOs is to improve student achievement at the classroom level. Equally important is to provide evidence of each teacher’s instructional impact on student learning. This process requires teachers to use assessments to determine student growth over the length of the course.
Which courses have SLOs? Generally speaking, courses that do not have state-mandated Georgia Milestones assessments utilize SLOs.
The reviews are created to be completed during class time to give students ample access to resources and teacher instruction. Students are to work independently to assess their own knowledge and pace themselves independent of others as the progress in preparation for the SLO. This will help students identify areas of strength and weakness. Students are also encouraged to log on to USA TEST PREP for additional practice at home.
