Virginia Alternate Assessment Program (VAAP) Performance

Learn about your child's VAAP performance

Certain students with disabilities who are taught on the Aligned Standards of Learning (ASOL) may be identified to take part in the Virginia Alternate Assessment Program (VAAP) in place of the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests. Teachers collect samples of student work throughout the year for these students to demonstrate their understanding of the ASOLs. Collections of evidence are scored each spring by specially trained and qualified teachers, under guidelines from the Virginia Department of Education.

Official student results are distributed to parents and guardians in the summer following VAAP participation, and parents are invited to review and to take possession of their children's collections at defined points in the two years following a student's VAAP participation. The links below provide additional information about each of these opportunities for parents to understand their children's VAAP performance.
