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. More information about the SOLs is available online. The testing calendar is also available online.
SOL RESULTS FOR APS
Three-year summary reports for APS schools are available online for elementary, middle and high schools. The reports show across grade levels by school, subject and group. The high school report includes end-of-course SOL tests in each of the following content areas: English/Reading, Mathematics, Science, History/Social Science, and Writing. APS summary reports include results for HB Woodlawn in addition to the state-recognized secondary schools.
Click the following links for APS summary results:
· History/Social Science tests for 2010-2011 were revised to reflect 2008 standards. These new tests contain items with more rigor than previous tests. Any comparison of results to previous years should take this information into account.
· Results based on fewer than 10 students may not be statistically reliable for that subgroup.
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.
