On Aug. 16, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) released the results of the 2022 Standards of Learning (SOL) tests administered near the end of the 2021-2022 school year.
This year, RCPS students made significant gains in performance on the 2022 SOL tests, especially in math.
“Our overall reading increased by 4 percentage points and our overall math increased by an impressive 11 percentage points from last year’s results,” said Ben Williams, director of assessment and research.
“We are back to pre-pandemic performance in many of our individual subjects. Our reading performance last school year was strong and our math performance was exceptional, well above the statewide average,” Williams said.
Overall reading scores were nine points above the statewide average while overall math scores were 16 points above the statewide average.
