• What is the GA Milestones Test?

    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 the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

    • open-ended (constructed-response) items in English 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 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.
