TESTING INFORMATION for grades 3, 4, and 5

Dear Families,

In the fall, the Virginia Department of Education released a new method for parents/guardians to receive your child’s test results.  The Virginia Assessment Parent Portal is a web-based portal where you can create a user account and gain access to your child’s test results for certain statewide assessments, such as Virginia Growth Assessments and Standards of Learning (SOL) tests.  You will be able to review your child’s test score reports, and, in most cases, also be able to view a personalized video.  For spring 2022, reports will be available through the Virginia Assessment Parent Portal for SOL tests in Grades 3-8 Reading and Mathematics.  As students test, new score reports will become available each Friday and will reflect scores from each test attempt.  Score reports from other SOL tests taken this spring will be sent home with final report cards.

To access the Virginia Assessment Parent Portal:

  • Watch this brief video ( https://youtu.be/TyZMGDTa5mQ ).
  • Click on this link to get to the Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) PowerSchool Parent Portal (https://henricoschools.us/online-services/). Please note that the HCPS PowerSchool Parent Portal will be unavailable in July 2022 to prepare for the new school year.
  • Go to “Access Online Forms” and open the form titled “Virginia Assessment Parent Portal.”  The form will provide directions for creating an account as well as the specific student information needed to access the scores, including a unique claim code.
  • Record the claim code in an easily accessible location.  The claim code must be entered each time you login to the Virginia Assessment Parent Portal to receive your child’s most current score reports.
