High School Testing

SOL and WorkKeys Tests

HS Non-Writing Testing Information

Across Virginia in the spring, high school students will be taking Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course (EOC) tests.

In FCPS, high school non-writing SOL tests will be scheduled between April 25 and May 20, 2022. All SOL tests are taken in-person at school.  Our staff will schedule specific SOL testing dates for your student. Dates will be available later this year.

  • State law requires students to verify credit for high school courses to fulfill graduation requirements for a standard or advanced studies diploma. For additional information regarding graduation requirements see the Graduation Requirements and Course Planning webpage (https://www.fcps.edu/academics/graduation-requirements-and-course-planning). SOL tests are the most common way students earn the verified credits they need. SOL tests are designed to measure what students have learned of the content and skills detailed in the Virginia Standards of Learning. 
  • Additionally, federal law requires schools to offer students one SOL test in reading, mathematics, and science while they are in grades 9-12. The tests provide information about student achievement to the parent, school, school division, and state.
  • Scores are available for families no later than the start of the next school year.
