The Virginia Department of Education is planning to release the following spring 2009 Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in spring 2010.
Due to the potential impact of releasing tests on the item banks, the spring 2009 Grades 5 and 6 Reading, EOC Biology, EOC Earth Science, and all history/social science tests will not be released in spring 2010. Furthermore, these tests will not be eligible for review by school division personnel.
If you have questions, please contact the Office of Assessment Development by e-mail at Student_Assessment@doe.virginia.gov or by phone at (804) 225-2918.
