    Understanding the Georgia Milestones Achievement Levels

    Grade 3            Grade 4            Grade 5



    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 English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  

    Students in grades 3 through 8 take an end-of-grade assessment in English Language Arts and Mathematics while students in grades 5 and 8 are also assessed in Science and Social Studies. High school students take an end-of-course assessment for each of the ten courses designated by the State Board of Education.

    Features found on the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

    • open-ended (constructed-response) items in English Language Arts and Mathematics

    • a writing component (in response to passages read by students) at every grade level and course within the English 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.
