Georgia Milestones Testing Begins on Tuesday, April 10


Our spring Georgia Milestones Assessment System testing window opens on Tuesday, April 10, andga we are prepared for a successful testing season.  The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is a comprehensive assessment system spanning grades 3 through high school.  Students in grades 3 through 8 will take End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments in English/Language Arts and Mathematics. Additionally, 5th and 8th grade students will also take Science and Social Studies. Students taking specific high school courses will take the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments.

 

Georgia Milestones is designed to measure and provide information about how well students are mastering the state adopted content standards.  Importantly, Georgia Milestones is designed to provide students with critical information about their own achievement and readiness for their next level of learning.

 

Georgia Milestones includes the following features:

  • Multiple-choice items in all content areas and courses
  • Multi-part and multi-select items in all content areas
  • Open-ended (constructed response) items in English/Language Arts and Mathematics (all grades and courses)
  • A writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the English/Language Arts assessments
  • Nationally norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses to complement the Georgia criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison

 

Specific Information for End-of-Grade Tests

We ask that you make every effort to ensure your student gets a good night’s rest and arrives at school on time each day for testing. The EOG tests will be administered over a fourteen-day period and all tests will be administered online.  See the schedule below for more details. Please contact your school if you have questions.
