Virginia Remote Student Progress Test (VRSPT)

Grade 3-8 families who refuse SOL testing may have a new remote test option

Note: VRSPT are not available for the 2021-22 school year. 

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has developed a new assessment option for families of fully virtual students in grades 3-8. When a family decides to refuse the in-person Standards of Learning (SOL) test because of COVID-related concerns, their grade 3-8 students will have the opportunity to access the new Virginia Remote Student Progress Test (VRSPT). Students attending school one or more day in-person are not eligible for this remote test.

The VRSPT is an optional assessment that uses SOL-like questions delivered online. The VRSPT is available for grade 3-8 reading, grade 5 and 8 science, and grade 3-8 mathematics. VRSPT assessments are not available for high school credit-bearing courses, such as Algebra 1 and Geometry. 

Purpose of the VRSPT

The VRSPT is intended as a means for families of fully virtual students to obtain information about their children’s achievement on grade-level content standards during virtual learning. Families whose students complete VRSPT assessment(s) by June 4 will receive a report with their score(s) before the start of the next school year. 

Accessing and Completing the Test

Families of eligible students will automatically receive information on how to access and complete this test at home. Once the VRSPT becomes available for families beginning around May 10, students may complete their VRSPT assessments at any time by June 4. 

Although the same content standards and question formats are used, the Virginia Remote Student Progress Monitoring Test is not an SOL test. The test is not proctored and does not require a secure testing environment.
