Georgia Milestones - Experience Online Testing
The Georgia Department of Education is pleased to announce that the Experience Online Testing Georgia website has been updated to include a demonstration test for each content area: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The primary purpose of this website is to provide exposure to the online platform that students will utilize when taking the Georgia Milestones tests.
This practice site lets students see what testing online is like. Parents and educators are welcome to try it, too. The items on the demonstration tests are general and represent multiple grade levels. The items do not necessarily represent the specific grade-level content that students learn daily in their classrooms. The primary purpose is to let students experience, firsthand, the functionality of the online testing platform. The sample tests are not graded, so have fun!

It is important to understand the items that comprise the demonstration tests are general in nature and reflect multiple grade levels. Given the purpose of this site is to acquaint students with the navigation of the online testing process, the items are generic and do not necessarily reflect the range of content or challenge students will experience when taking the actual Georgia Milestones tests. In addition to the four content area demonstration tests, three short accommodated demonstration tests are available including High Contrast, Large Font, and Screen Reader.
Please be aware that Flash is needed to access the demonstration tests and therefore the site cannot be viewed from iPads or other devices that do not support Flash. This should not be interpreted to mean that this limitation of the demonstration tests applies to the operational Georgia Milestones tests.
Again, these opportunities are provided to ensure students have familiarity with the testing platform prior to a live administration. A similar opportunity will be provided in the spring, prior to students in grades 3–8 taking the Georgia Milestones EOG measures.
We hope you find the Experience Online Testing Georgia website helpful as we transition to Georgia Milestones.
