End of Year SMARTR Outcome

By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, FMS students who meet the criterion listed below will demonstrate proficient writing skills within the domains of Composition/Written Expression and Usage/Mechanics on two pieces of writing as measured by the VDOE Standards of Learning 4-point writing rubric. Students will be identified if they:

  • Earned a score lower than 8 (out of possible 12) on a pre-writing sample (with the Composition/ Written Expression Domain being weighted twice, and Usage/Mechanics being weighted once as prescribed by VDOE).

Competent writing skills will be measured by the student earning a final score of at least 3 (out of possible 4) in both domains on both pieces of writing.

Strategy 1 

  • Provide explicit instruction on the writing process and how it is scored according to the VDOE ELA standards.
