Released Test booklet Is Coming Home Today!

Posted by Kristen Sherrick on May 21, 2015

Today your child received their 2014 released test booklet back as well as the students summary report that breaks down each math sol objective and how your child performed on each skill. Please use this information to review and practice with your child over the extended weekend coming up as this will be their last opportunity for review before the SOL test on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

Please keep in mind that tomorrow (Friday) will be the last day of class time review as we are out through Monday, and Tuesday is Field Day in the morning and yearbook signing in the afternoon. It is very important that your child keeps reviewing their math skills over these next few days before their test.

Additionally, you can find a blank copy of this test from the VDOE website:
From the home page click on: Standards of Learning and Testing on the left hand side
Then click on Released Tests under the Resources heading on the right hand side of the page.
Choose the 2014 Test under Math. There is an online version and a PDF version to choose from. If you choose to do the online version there is an answer sheet that can be printed to accompany it.

Thanks for your help in getting your child prepared for their upcoming SOL test!!

VDOE 4th Grade Math Practice Items

Posted by Kristen Sherrick on May 11, 2015

Last week in class the students completed the VDOE 4th grade math practice items. Over the weekend I scored each one and today we went over all the problems and students were shown how to correctly work out the problems as well as what the correct answers are. I am sending both the booklet and the answer document home today. The answer document is to be signed and returned tomorrow. Please take note of the score your child received. If this had been the SOL test, a score of 66 or less would have equaled a failing score on the test.

I am encouraging you to PLEASE go back through this booklet with your child multiple times between now and the Math SOL test on May 27th & 28th. These items are a practice, so they are the representation of the types of problems your child may see on the SOL test.

Additionally, these practice items can be found on the Virginia Department of Education Website: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/
From the home page click on: Standards of Learning and Testing on the left hand side
Then click on Practice Items under the Resources heading on the right hand side of the page.
On the next screen in the yellow box under Mathematics click practice items beside 4th grade.
The answers to the practice problems can be found on the same page just click on “guide” and scroll down to the end of the pdf file to appendix A.

Not only will this give your child practice with the math concepts, but it will also allow them to complete the practice problems in the same format in which they will see the test questions on the math sol test. They can practice using the tools, navigating through the test, and practice the Technology Enhanced Questions just like they will answer them on test day.

Don’t forget you can also practice with the released tests available from VDOE website as well.

Thanks for your help in preparing your child for their upcoming SOL test!!
