*Please note that tests with special accommodations, make ups, and retakes will not necessarily take place on these dates.

How do I know when/where I am testing?

  • Parent/guardians of students that are testing should have received an email with their testing date/time and room assignment on 5/3/2021. Students were also CC-ed on this email. All testing communication will be to the student's fcpsschools.net email, so students need to check it regularly.

What do I need to bring?

  • Students need to bring a mask, pencil, charged FCPSOn laptop, and charger. Students may also bring a reclosable water bottle, since water fountains are not open.

Can I bring my own computer?

  • Students may NOT test on personal devices. Students can only test on school-owned devices.

Is my FCPSOn laptop ready for testing?

  • Before test day, students should run their Health Check to make sure their computers are up-to-date for testing. If you have questions about your laptop, please contact our FCPSOn team at @email.

Will bus transportation be provided on testing days?

  • FCPS bus transportation can only be provided to families that requested it when responding to the SOL form.

What happens after testing is done? Will I miss class to test?

Both Friday 5/14 and Tuesday 5/18 have been approved as asynchronous instruction days, so students testing on 5/14, 5/17, and/or 5/18 will not miss synchronous instruction.

When does the test end?

The SOL tests are NOT timed tests, so they end when students have finished testing. Once students finish testing, they are expected to leave the building unless waiting for FCPS bus transportation.

What if I have other questions?

  • If you have any other questions about SOL testing, please contact your student's counselor (Student Services Staff) or the assessment coach Gina Lee at @email.
