Student Assessment Summary Reports

VDOE and local school divisions now provide parents access to their child’s SOL test performance history reports. Each Student Assessment Summary provides information about a student's SOL test patterns and may help identify places where additional educational support may be needed or highlight accelerated learning opportunities. This information along with a student’s year-end grades and 2023 SOL test results provides context when engaging with a student’s teachers and school about his/her education.
