MAP - The Measures of Academic Progress Growth Test (MAP) is designed to measure students’ readiness for learning specific content and skills and academic growth over time. Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) students in grades 2-8 will take the MAP Reading and Math Growth tests and high school students enrolled in Algebra I and Geometry will take the corresponding MAP test. For more information, please visit the LCPS MAP Testing Site. These tests are given three times per school year. Please refer to our Testing Calendar.
SOL - The Standards of Learning (SOL) for Virginia Public Schools establish minimum expectations for what students should know and be able to demonstrate at the end of each grade or course in English, mathematics, science, history/social science, technology, the fine arts, foreign language, health/physical education and driver education. SOL ensure that students across the state are taught the same content at nearly the same time. Cumulative, annual assessments – SOL tests and alternative assessments – provide information on individual student achievement. All Harmony students take the SOL for math and reading each year. In addition, 8th graders take the following tests: Writing, Science, and Civics. Students who take Algebra 1 and Geometry take the end of course tests for those classes as well. Refer to our testing calendar for specific dates. For more information from Loudoun County, please visit the LCPS SOL page.
