Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The revisions to the Guidance Document Governing Certain Provisions of the Regulations Establishing Standards for Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia, 8VAC20-131-110 Standard and Verified Units of Credit: Locally-Awarded Verified Credit (the SOA Guidance Document) allow for the use of performance assessments to verify credits in history and social science addresses language included in the 2020 and 2021 Virginia General Assembly’s Appropriations Act that adds “successful completion of assessments that include state-developed performance tasks scored locally in accordance with Board guidelines using state-developed rubrics” as an option for earning verified credit in history/social science. These amendments to the SOA Guidance Document provide guidance for local school divisions that exercise the option of using state-developed performance tasks, in conjunction with other local assessments, to determine if a student has earned a locally-awarded verified credit (LAVC) in history and social science.
