Standards of Learning (SOL) Assessments
SOL assessments are used in grades 3-12 for federal and state accountability
Standards of Learning (SOL) assessments are the main part of the Virginia Assessment Program for grades 3-12. SOL tests are used to fulfill:
- Federal requirements for annual testing in reading, mathematics, and science
- State requirements for testing in writing and social studies
- Graduation requirements for verified credit to earn a standard or advanced studies diploma
Most students in grades 3 and up take Standards of Learning (SOL) tests each year, as required for the grade level or courses enrolled. Test results are generally available for parents and guardians within 3 months after the test was taken.
