Experience Online Testing Georgia!
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 are organized into three grade bands: Grades 3 – 5, Grades 6 – 8, and High School in the content areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. 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!
What is the Georgia Milestones Assessment System?
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive assessment system 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 will take End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments in each content area, while high school students will take End-of-Course (EOC) assessments for each of the eight courses designated by the State Board of Education.

The Parents' Guide to New Tests in Georgia!
In 2010, Georgia adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts and mathematics and incorporated them into the existing Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). Georgia's new state-mandated set of standards is called the College and Career Ready Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS). CCGPS provides a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn in English and mathematics as they progress through grades K-12.
For the 2014-2015 school year, Georgia will begin rolling out new assessments aligned to the CCGPS. These new assessments will be used to gauge how well students are mastering the standards and, ultimately, how ready students are to succeed in college and careers.
