Throughout the year, we diligently prepare our students for the upcoming SOL testing season. The evermore increasing importance of these summative assessments can weigh heavily upon teachers and students alike. As teachers, we work hard to provide opportunities for our students to interact with SOL content and practice essential skills in memorable and meaningful ways. We hope that the students will conceptualize and internalize the content and skills we are tasked to impart upon them. We have seen how students show mastery through authentic formative assessments, classroom discussions, and via benchmark test results. Test taking is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. It would be negligent of us to not teach them these important test-taking skills.
