SLO information

Earlier this semester, teachers posted information to their syllabi regarding the SLO (Student Learning Objectives) assessment and how it would be graded.  This test was given at the beginning of the semester as a baseline measure and again recently to measure the student’s individual growth.  The score at the end of the semester was originally going to be used to calculate part of the final exam grade.  We recently learned that it is up to each local school to determine how to, if at all, grade this assessment.  Upon further review, we have decided to exclude those scores from being calculated into the final exam grade.  This may, however, change for the upcoming year as the guidelines are still fluctuating.  If you have questions, please contact Mr. T.J. Perry at tommy.perry@cobbk12.org
