SOL Tests

  • The Standards of Learning (SOL) for Virginia Public Schools establish minimum expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade or course in English, mathematics, science, history/social science and other subjects.

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



    All reports are available in Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) ParentVUE and Reading, Math, Science, and History will be in the Pearson Parent Portal at the conclusion of testing.  The Pearson Parent Portal can be accessed by using claim codes that are available in NPS ParentVUE. Click on ParentVUE for directions to access score reports and claim codes.  They can also be found on the back of the testing transparency letter sent home with all students required to test, before the testing window began. 


    If support is needed to access NPS ParentVUE please contact your student's school. 


    Teacher/School Reporting

    Teachers are able to access the same reports as families in TeacherVUE.  Please see your School Test Coordinator for support to locate the reports, if needed.
