Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Format for Copyright Notations on the Standards of Learning Tests

 

 

Beginning with the Spring 2008 Standards of Learning (SOL) Test Administration, test items for grades 3 through 8 containing copyrighted content such as photographs, passages, diagrams, or other art renderings will have the specific copyright information displayed with each item. Previously, copyright information was presented on the front inside cover of each test booklet. All end-of-course tests currently have copyright information displayed in this new format.

 

The copyright information only serves to fulfill legal copyright requirements and does not impact test items. The PDF attachment provides an example of the new copyright format.

If you have questions, please contact the Division of Assessment and Reporting at darfax@doe.virginia.gov or by phone at (804) 225-2102.
