State Sets SOL Math, Reading Pass Rates Through 2013

October 28, 2010

The state Board of Education has adopted annual pass rates for standardized reading and mathematics tests for the next four years.

The board on Thursday voted to adopt an 82 percent pass rate for the Standards of Learning reading tests, and an 80 percent pass rate for the math tests, for the 2010-11 through 2012-13 school years. In 2013-14, the required pass rates for both tests will be set at 100 percent under the federal No Child Left Behind law.

The benchmarks are used to hold schools accountable for boosting all students' academic performance, NCLB's main goal. For a school to pass muster, each student subgroup - including English learners and children with disabilities, for example - must meet the pass rate.
