Planning and Evaluation

SOL Tests

The Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) outline the goals and objectives of curriculum taught in the state’s public schools at each grade level and in each subject area. Student performance is measured by a series of state-mandated SOL tests. Thirty-two SOL tests measure competency in the four core areas: English (Reading and Writing), Mathematics, History/Social Science, and Science.
 
State SOL Report Cards and SOL Results
SOL results are part of the School Report Card and begin on page 9 of that report. School Report Card results include VAAP and VGLA alternate test results and are adjusted for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reporting. (Failing scores for students who transferred into APS during the year and for qualifying LEP students have been excluded.) These results include all APS students in their school of registration and do not break out results for students in APS continuation and special program schools. All figures are percentages.
