4th Grade Math SOL Part I - May 23rd

The Standards of Learning (SOL) for Virginia Public Schools establish minimum expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade or course in English, mathematics, science, history/social science and other subjects. SOL tests in reading, writing, mathematics, science and history/social science measure the success of students in meeting the Board of Education's expectations for learning and achievement. All items on SOL tests are reviewed by Virginia classroom teachers for accuracy and fairness and teachers also assist the state Board of Education in setting proficiency standards for the tests.

On the day of the test, make sure your child is rested, eats a good breakfast, and arrives to school on time. Know testing dates, and be sure to not schedule any sort of appointment for those days. The night before, make sure that your child gets to bed early enough and gets a good night sleep. Adequate rest does make a difference! If your child is a restless sleeper, take them to do something active earlier in the day. Nutrition also influences how well children do on a test -make sure your child gets a good meal, but not too heavy of a meal. Send them off to school wearing comfortable clothing for long test-taking periods.
