• What is the Georgia Milestones Assessment System?
    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.

Experience Online Testing Georgia (Demonstration Test)

  • The Georgia Milestones tests measure what students in grades 3 through high school have learned. Many students will take the tests online. 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! Technical documentation, tutorials, and a link to your online experience can be found at this link.
