The Standards of Learning (SOL) for Virginia Public Schools establish minimum expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade or course in English, mathematics, science, history/social science and other subjects.
SOL tests in reading, writing, mathematics, science and history/social science measure the success of students in meeting the Board of Education’s expectations for learning and achievement. All items on SOL tests are reviewed by Virginia classroom teachers for accuracy and fairness and teachers also assist the state Board of Education in setting proficiency standards for the tests.
More information can be found at the Virginia Department of Education Standards of Learning page.
Please encourage your child/children to:
- Take the test seriously.
- Be present each day of testing.
- Get plenty of rest.
- Eat a good breakfast.
- Be on time.
- Do well on the tests.
