RICHMOND, Va. (WVEC) -- SOL test results were relatively unchanged from the previous school year, according to the Virginia Department of Education.
Overall, 80 percent of students achieved proficient or advanced scores in reading, and 79 percent passed tests in mathematics, compared with 80 percent in both subjects in 2015-2016. Eighty-two percent passed grade-level or end-of-course SOL tests in science, compared with 83 percent previously.
VDOE does note that black students made gains on five of the six elementary and middle school reading tests.
