General Testing Information
Testing Information/Landing Page
To comply with s. 1008.22. F.S., and to maintain our viability as an education option for our students, Volusia Online Learning requires participation in all required state-mandated assessments. Testing dates are determined by the State of Florida and confirmed by the district. VOL cannot alter test dates. Parents/Guardians and secondary students will be provided specific dates and times for state-mandated testing in advance. The student’s family is responsible for all transportation and other requirements related to attending the testing. Families should expect to spend additional time at the test site for check-in, check-out, traveling time to and from the testing room, as well as testing site specific information that guarantee an optimal testing environment for all students.
All end of year, state-mandated tests (Progress Monitoring 3 & EOCs) are administered at the student’s zoned school. Students must attend testing in-person. The parent/guardian is responsible for ensuring transportation and adherence to other school-specific requirements/directions related to participation in state-mandated testing. The state only allows for remote testing for Progress Monitoring Assessments 1 and 2.
Staying on pace with course work, combined with attending live lessons, will help to ensure that students are prepared for testing.
- Failure to attend state-mandated assessments as scheduled, or failure to follow test-site procedures resulting in dismissal from testing, may be grounds for revocation from VOL.
