IKH - Retaking SOL Assessments

File: IKH






            Eligible students may qualify for an expedited retake of an end-of-course SOL assessment to earn a verified credit where the student meets the criteria established by the Virginia Board of Education.


            Under the criteria established by the state Board, the student must:


Need the test for verified credit; and

Have passed the course associated with the test, and one of the following:


·        Failed the test by a narrow margin, or

·        Failed the test by any margin and have extenuating circumstances that would warrant retesting, or

·        Did not sit for the regularly scheduled test for legitimate reasons.


For purposes of these criteria, “narrow margin” means a scaled score of 375-399.  The division superintendent will be responsible for making the determination of what constitutes “extenuating circumstances” and “legitimate reasons” for purposes of establishing eligibility for an expedited retest of an end-of-course SOL assessment.
