Please click the link above to view the Elementary School Testing Calendar. The purposes of the Georgia Student Assessment Program are to: measure student achievement of the state mandated curriculum, identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, provide teachers with diagnostic information, and assist school systems in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
