Georgia Milestones Assessment System

  • The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is a comprehensive summative assessment program for grades 3 through 12. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade (EOG) assessment in each content area, while high school students will take an end-of-course (EOC) assessment for each of the eight courses designated by the State Board of Education.

    Features the Georgia Milestone Assessment System include:

    • open-ended (constructed-response) items in 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 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-pencil as back-up until the transition is complete.
