Introduction of New SOL Testing Delivery Software

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working to expand the types of devices that school divisions can use in the administration of Standards of Learning (SOL) online tests. In order to accomplish this goal, the VDOE is upgrading its software from TestNav7 to TestNav8. The software will be phased in during the 2016-2017 school year. As the software is phased in, schools will provide training to all students to familiarize them with the upgraded software prior to test implementation. There are no changes to the subjects tested or types of questions that will be presented. TestNav8 online practice items are only available through the TestNav8 app. Instructions on how to install TestNav8 on various devices are listed below. Practice guides should be used when reviewing the online practice items and are available on the VDOE website. To view online practice items you will need to download the new TestNav8. Other released practice tests are also available on the VDOE's website.

TestNav8 for Non-VBCPS Devices

Check TestNav System Requirements before you download installable TestNav. Virginia will administer SOL tests through installable TestNav apps, NOT the browser-based TestNav.
