VVAAS Description

Virginia’s Visualization and Analytics Solution (VVAAS) is a web-based tool available to all Virginia K-12 divisions. The VVAAS portal displays measures of students’ academic growth over time based on SOL testing data, diagnostic reports for student groups, and student projections to help educators improve student achievement and inform classroom instruction. Reports provided by VVAAS, in tandem with other data sources, can help educators make decisions regarding curriculum changes, identify and support long-term student goals, and help reveal trends of student groups in need of additional support.

VVAAS Reports

VVAAS Public Site

The VVAAS Public site provides a graphing tool called scatterplots, which enables comparison among Virginia K-12 public division. The scatterplots create interactive graphs for an SOL test that include growth, achievement, and student demographic information for each division within the state. View the linked documents on site for more details.

VVAAS Virginia Learning Gap Analysis

The statewide report focuses on student Standards of Learning (SOL) Test performance by comparing students’ pre-pandemic expected performance with their post-pandemic actual performance. The data presented demonstrates how the pandemic impacted student achievement in Virginia and to what level students have recovered learning gaps in core subject areas. The charts show the extent to which students fell short of their expected performance on state assessments in 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.  

Fall 2024 Release Date TBD

The Fall 2024 Release will expand the VVAAS reporting information to allow educators to see trends over three years. VVAAS uses VDOE assessment data to build reports.  

  •  The Fall 2024 reports include SOL test data from the 2015-16 school year through the 2023-2024 school year.
  • The Fall 2023 reports include SOL test data from the 2015-16 school year through the 2022-2023 school year.
