SOL Score Reports for Parents

Understanding your student's SOL results

After each Standards of Learning (SOL) testing window, student results are verified and submitted to the Virginia Department of Education. Once this verification process is complete, scores are available for official reporting to parents. In an effort to make student results more understandable to parents and guardians, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) prepares a custom SOL parent score report for each testing window. Contents of the official Fairfax County Public Schools score report are provided below.

Official results are listed below for Standards of Learning (SOL) tests your student took in the recent testing window. Your student’s overall scaled score and performance level are listed for each SOL test, along with the score for each reporting category.

Overall scaled scores are reported on a scale of 0-600. A student must attain an overall scaled score of 400 or higher to pass the test. If a student attains an overall scaled score of 500 or higher, the student is considered to have performed at an advanced level on the test. An overall scaled score between 0 and 399 indicates the student did not pass the test. An entry of “NS” for the scaled score means no score is available. If your student has multiple results for the same test, this means your student attempted the same test more than once during this testing window.

The performance level gives a brief description of the overall test outcome. Additional information about the knowledge and skills a student would be expected to demonstrate at each performance level for a SOL test is available on the Virginia Department of Education webpage (

Reporting category (RC) scores are reported on a scale of 0-50 and indicate relative strengths and needs within the tested subject area. A RC score of 40 or above indicates strength in that area, and a RC score below 30 indicates an area for growth. An entry of “NS” for the RC score means no score is available.

If you have any questions about the results shown on this report, please contact your student’s school counselor or school test coordinator/assessment coach.
