Standards of Learning Tests to be Completed by End of School Year


As communicated to school divisions via Superintendent’s Memo #065-17, March 3, 2017, the spring 2018 statewide testing window for the Standards of Learning (SOL) non-writing tests is from April 9 to June 22, 2018.  Schools divisions are to select a test window of three to four weeks within this timeframe for the initial administration of the SOL tests.  Expedited retests for eligible students may occur after the school division’s designated testing window.  However, all testing must be completed by the last day of school for students in the division.  If circumstances require testing students after the last day of school, the school division should contact student assessment staff at the Virginia Department of Education at (804) 225-2102 or student_assessment@doe.virginia.gov: Email link. to determine next steps.  Questions regarding this memo should be addressed to the student assessment staff using the contact information listed above.
