Due to the COVID-19 school closures in 2019-20, pass rates were not calculated because many assessments were not conducted. Listed below is the equity scorecard assessment data from 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2020-21

The data show on this page include the performance of Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) students on Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests for the previous three years. Performance is shown in each subject area tested (Reading, Mathematics, Science, History, and Writing). Within each subject area, there are charts for overall pass rates (by ethnicity and by student group) as well as for pass advanced rates.

The charts comparing student group performance show data and gaps over time between some or all of the identified student groups and their comparison groups. In many cases, multiple comparisons are shown on the same chart to conserve space. NOTE: The yellow outlined box that appears on some of the comparison charts is a visual representation of the gap between the groups being compared.
