Georgia Milestones Assessment System

  • The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment pro​gram 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 English Language Arts and mathematics, while students in grade 5 will also take an assessment for science. Students in grade 8 will take end-of-course assessments in all four academic areas. Students in high school will take an end-of-course assessment for each of the ten 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​il as back-up until the transition is complete.

    Students at the high school level will take an end-of-course assessment in the following ten courses:

    • Language Arts
      • American Literature and Composition
    •  Mathematics
      • Coordinate Algebra
