The Standards of Learning assessments for public schools in Virginia establish minimum expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade or course in English, math, science, history and social science, and other subjects.

SOL tests in reading, writing, math, science and history and social science measure the success of students in meeting the Virginia 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 Virginia Board of Education in setting proficiency standards for the tests.

Learn more about the Virginia standards at the Virginia Department of Education website.
