SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 197
October 22, 1999
|FROM:||Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Conformance of the Social Studies SOL Tests to the Social Studies Teacher Resource Guide|
It has come to our attention that there is perhaps erroneous information in the field regarding the degree to which the SOL Social Studies tests will match the recently released teacher resource guide. Let me assure you that the Division of Assessment and Reporting has reviewed all of the items in the current social studies item bank for their conformance to the teacher resource guide and has removed those that do not match. The SOL Social Studies tests administered hereafter beginning with the fall 1999 test administration will adhere to the teacher resource guide. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Division of Assessment and Reporting at (804) 225-2102. PDS/CMH/atb .
