Local Alternative Assessments

Campbell County Public Schools Local Alternative Assessment


General Information:  

In 2014, the state Board of Education approved guidelines for locally developed assessments that replaced the SOL tests for  3rd Grade History, 3rd Grade Science, 5th Grade Writing, U.S. History I, and US History II SOL tests, which have been eliminated by the General Assembly.  School divisions must certify that they have provided instruction and administered an alternative assessment to students that no longer have these corresponding SOL tests.


Guidelines for Local Alternative Assessments require school divisions to provide a balanced assessment system, where students produce work or demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, and skills in ways that are authentic to the subject and/or the real world.  Your child’s work is evaluated, not graded, to better improve assessment and instruction in the classroom.
