2024 SOL Testing Information

HS Non-Writing and Writing SOL Testing

Across Virginia, high school students take Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course (EOC) tests.  View list of Verified Credit Requirements.

The Spring Non-Writing SOL window (April 15 - May 17) will be starting soon. All SOL tests are taken in-person at school.  Our staff will schedule specific SOL testing dates for your student.

  • State law requires students to verify credit for high school courses to fulfill graduation requirements for a standard or advanced studies diploma. For additional information regarding graduation requirements see the Graduation Requirements and Course Planning webpage (https://www.fcps.edu/academics/graduation-requirements-and-course-planning). SOL tests are the most common way students earn the verified credits they need. SOL tests are designed to measure what students have learned of the content and skills detailed in the Virginia Standards of Learning. 
  • Additionally, federal law requires schools to offer students one SOL test in reading, mathematics, and science while they are in grades 9-12. The tests provide information about student achievement to the parent, school, school division, and state.
  • Scores are available for families in ParentVUE no later than the start of the next school year. 
  • Students are reminded that they should be regularly restarting their FCPSOn laptops and Chromebooks at school while connected to the network to make sure their devices are updated and ready for testing. Please take your device to the Tech Office (281) if you are having difficulty. A testing device will be provided only for students whose families have opted them out of the FCPSOn program.
