Blacksburg Test Scores
The state of Virginia has set up an assessment system for its students called the Virginia Standards of Learning, or SOL. Through this system, students from grades 3-8 take tests in subjects like computer science, math, English, science, and others. High school students take end-of-course exams in civics, probability and statistics, composition, chemistry, and other classes. Many students looking to attend private schools or get into college or graduate programs will face exams like the SAT, ACT, HSPT, MCAT, and others designed to help schools make decisions about admissions and placement. Students generally do better on standardized exams if they’re not only comfortable with the material but have strategies to help with each test's unique format and timing.
