The Spring 2023 Standards of Learning (SOL) Writing test window will begin on March 7, 2023, for grade 8 students and students enrolled in English 11. If you have questions about your student’s test date, please contact their school.

The mission of the Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) Testing is to facilitate a reliable state and local assessment program using exceptional customer service that supports valid decision making by all members of our stakeholder population. Testing is responsible for managing all aspects of a comprehensive assessment system, which includes the Virginia Assessment Program and a variety of other national and local assessments designed to measure achievement in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Among the various assessments managed by the Testing Office are the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests, the Virginia Alternate Assessment Program (VAAP), and the Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language Learners (ACCESS for ELLs) tests.

Note: High school students only participate in an SOL test if they need to meet a federal participation requirement or need a qualifying score to satisfy a verified credit requirement for graduation.
