Va. SOL Results: Improvements in Math, Drop in English, Science

August 20, 2013

The latest results from the Standards Of Learning (SOL) tests are out, and overall, student achievement is up from last year.

State-wide, 71 percent of students passed the math portion of the test, compared with 68-percent during the previous school year.

Seventy-five percent of students passed the reading test for their grade level, and 76 percent passed in writing.

There was a drop in the number of students passing the reading and writing portions of the SOLs, which officials expected since those sections were recently revised.

Officials believe that reading and writing achievement will increase as schools align curriculum and instruction with the new standards.

The percentage of students statewide passing grade-level or end-of-course tests in history/social science during 2012-2013 was 85 percent, the same as in 2011-2012.
