1. 1. Math & Technology SWIFT Committee 3 rd -5 th Grade Math SOL Findings February 21, 2007
2. 2. What We Found: <ul><li>Questions require students to read carefully. </li></ul><ul><li>If students are rushing or not reading carefully, mistakes can easily be made. </li></ul><ul><li>For students to be successful they need to learn test-taking skills as well as math skills. </li></ul>
3. 3. In this presentation we will discuss specific questions together and identify strong and weak areas from last year’s math SOL tests for grades 3–5 (in 10-15 minutes or less).
