Georgia Milestones End of Course Assessment

The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in each content area, while high school students will take an end-of-course assessment for each of the eight courses designated by the State Board of Education.

Features the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

* open-ended (constructed-response) items in 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 language arts assessment;
* norm-referenced items in all content areas and courses, to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison; and
* transition to online administration over time, with online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-penc‚Äčil as back-up until the transition is complete.
