Curriculum and SOL information:

*Want to know what each course covers? Check out the curriculum documents here: VDOE--curriculum framework and resources

*Need to prepare for an SOL? Check out Test Nav practice items at VDOE--practice items for the SOL. This link provides access to Test Nav questions in formats similar to what you may see on a science SOL. Students taking any science SOL can benefit from looking at how these questions should be answered. To see the updated style, please see the Biology questions which is the only course with updated items. However, regardless of the test you are taking, Test Nav questions are a terrific practice in any content.


*Want more practice questions for SOL preparation? Get a little more practice using released tests at VDOE--released tests & item sets. They are great question sets and should be used in addition to Test Nav practice. If you need more help, contact a teacher below!
