Office of Student Testing

Certain tests may be required for all students at a grade level or in a group. The Virginia Department of Education requires some of the tests; others are required by Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). Under Virginia requirements, Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests are given in reading and mathematics to all students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, and science tests are given to students in grades 5 and 8. History SOL tests are administered in grades 4 and 8. Writing SOL tests are administered in grades 8 and 11. In high school, SOL tests in English, mathematics, science, and history are administered when students complete specific courses.
