Released Tests and Sample Items
June 21, 2013 – Spring 2013 Standards of Learning Tests to be released in spring 2014. See Superintendent's Memo #167-13.
Released tests do not include all SOL tests administered during a test administration, but are representative of the content and skills included in the Virginia SOL tests and are provided to assist with understanding the format of the tests and questions. The answers to the questions for each test can be found in the back of the PDF document.
Tests and Sample Item Sets Released in Spring 2014
The following Standards of Learning (SOL) tests are now available. In order to preserve the integrity of the test item bank, some items on these forms, as administered in spring 2013, were replaced with items of similar content.
The remainder of released tests or sample item sets scheduled to be released per Superintendent’s Memo #167-13 are tentatively scheduled to be posted by the end of March 2014.
The PDF documents for tests released in spring 2014 show images of the test items as they appeared in an online test format. Due to variability in computer monitors, color in an item may appear differently on one monitor as compared to another.
Tests Released in Spring 2013
The following Standards of Learning (SOL) tests are a subset of the SOL tests that were administered in the Spring 2012 Test Administration.
