3 students earn perfect scores on SOL tests

PULASKI COUNTY — Three elementary school students within Pulaski County have learned that perfection is achievable.
Out of all of the students in Pulaski County’s school system in third, fifth and eighth grades — which are the grade levels in which students take four SOL tests in reading, math, social studies and science — only three students earned perfect scores of 600 on all four of those tests.
The three students are:
•Caleb Bishop, who was a third grade student at Riverlawn Elementary School this past school year. He is the son of Steven and Lisa Bishop.
•Brandon Estep, who was a fifth grade student at Critzer Elementary School this past school year. He is the son of Terry and Stephanie Estep.
•Adam Slate, who was a fifth grade student at Pulaski Elementary School this past school year. He is the son of Charles and Monica Slate.
“Last year in the spring, we had three students who made four perfect scores just like this year,” said Glenda Patton, coordinator of testing and special programs for Pulaski County Schools. “We also had eight students who made 600 on three of their four tests. Overall, out of a total of 9,050 tests given across the entire county, 356 of them were perfect scores.”
Patton added, “This year, with only part of our scores in due to equating of the forms, we have a total of 7,907 scores reported as of today, and 418 of them are perfect scores of 600.”
Unlike students in grades three, five and eight, students in grades four, six and seven only take two SOL tests per year in reading and math, Patton noted.
As for high school students, Patton said they are tested based on the classes they take each semester. The following classes are tested at the high school: English 11, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, World History part I, World History part II, and Virginia and U.S. History.
In addition, grades five, eight and 11 test in writing during a different testing window earlier in the semester or spring, Patton noted.
